    I saw that it was maybe possible for account names to be changed- so I opened this thread in the event that this was possible

    (because if it was possible I would like a name change also)

    tagging, uh, @miyotora and @seebs

    I believe it is possible. I am not entirely sure how, but I am pretty sure it is.

    I'm also interested in this, I've been wanting to change this accursed username since I saddled myself with it.

    theoretically it's a "core feature" in the Admin Control Panel

    but the xenforo forums don't have specifics that I can find
  5. An Actual Bird

    An Actual Bird neverthelass, Brid persisted, ate third baggel

    If it ever becomes possible I'd like to be An Actual Bird. Got no idea how to wrangle xenforo though, so, good luck.

    Okay, so, I'll try to do that. If that works, you may have to log in again using the new name.

    There you go. Yes, I can change user names. Post requests here.

    shinji not your savior

    could i get 'sunflower prince' changed to 'shinji'?

    do you think this feature will ever be put into our settings or will it always be an admin thing? also, thank you

    Vmaprie hlaf mermade too

    >_> @seebs : I hope it's not too much of a pain, but I'd like to shift off of using the my name-name here. If I could be "Vmaprie" that'd be great.

    I'd like it to stay an admin thing, personally, if only because focing people to post in this thread makes it way easier to track changes. I'm one of those folks who gets completely lost in tumblr url-change culture, and I'm sure there are others, so.

    yeah, that's also why I'm leaving my icon as is for a while, too

    I switched both url and icon on tumblr the last time and confused a bunch of people

    Vmaprie hlaf mermade too

    I'm not changing my icon, just had a moment of weariness at perpetually being my real name everywhere.

    @Starcrossedsky: exactly! Every time I fire up Tumblr it's a new game of "who the heck are these people?"

    see, i was gonna change my tagline to explain but i love it too much

    i put it in my "about", but i'm reasonably sure no one checks those. I don't check those, anyway

    Change "Snitchanon" to "Snitchanon", if at all possible.
