I don't think that's possible.

Only admins, super moderators and super unmoderators have that option in user CP :D

I know abk! :D
It is your change of user name that hinted me this, I wanted to use my official (:P) name mandeep, instead of manav (my own pet name)! :( :confused:

May be I can request CornedBee, he is a good friend of mine!! :D

Just create a new account and stop using your current one

Think about it:
You had user name - A
Your post count is - 200
You send me PM from user name - A


You change your user name - B
Your post count is - 200 (Same!!!)
Your sent PMs to me, now have a different user name, indicating they came from B!!

Some one has already done that!
abk - abh!shek


I wish to do the same!
anyone?

Can't you just PM a mod and ask nicely?
It's what I would've done when I wanted my capital 'a' but someone did it before I asked.
Then the board died and I lost it. I miss my capital 'a'.

I really don't understand what you mean by that.

Webmaster can be contacted at webmaster_at_cprogramming_dot_com. Now he will get mad if too many people request username change. Anyway, its his problem, not mine :D

I was a little curious to begin with, later I thought why not I use my real name if possible! :rolleyes:

How many PMs do you have that you really must save at all costs?

You could have created a new username by now.

Thanks medievalelks! I have only 559 posts + more than 160 sent/received PM! :D

Thanks for your concerns!

I have this habit of putting '!' after every sentence! I feel very boring with '.' so no one minds! :rolleyes:

Don't create a new account, just PM webmaster and kermi3. If they're too busy, or deny your request (certainly a possibility) then keep the name you've got. If it really bothers you, then consider creating a new account.

Thanks, I will, nothing worse is going to happen anyway! I will just have my old choice with me! :)

+ more than 160 sent/received PM! :DWow... glad to see I'm not on either end of that.

This, folks, is why I make sure not to leave a good impression with people. :)

thats why i thought for almost an hour before registering so that later i do not have to change my name always think about what you are going to use as a username since every body will be knowing you from your name only.
