I'd like to change my user name so that it conforms to what is my online handle every where else. Is there a way that can be done? I couldn't find a place anywhere to petition for it. Is it something they even do here at BGG.com?

Thanks.

Had this account for a while now. Have a lot of GG stored up and a good collection of microbadges. Was hoping there was a way to just petition a mod to change it.

I'd let him confirm the "nope" since he is the one who makes those decisions.

My understanding is it requires quite a bit of work for the admins to change it and is buggy; so much so that it is not done.

Any way to change your username ?

As JohnRayJr says, it is technically possible, however we've discovered that it causes a larger number of bugs for the account which had the name change. So we wouldn't be able to viably offer this as a regular feature even if we wanted to.

Has this changed in the time since the original post? I don't want to have to delete my account and re-enter everything (though I'm far less active than most members, so it wouldn't be *that* bad)

This hasn't changed. And the bugs it introduces to your account would probably make you choose to make a new account anyways.

The isn't a concern since you can just gift it from your old account to the new one.

It's possible an admin who had the time could gift you those micro-badges.

Re: Is it possible to change your user name some?
Yeah! When 'moi' wanted to change into "GRABnads"; then, N-O-B-O-D-Y wanted to get within 'reach' or 'touch' for thus! The very same happened with: "Cockknocker" shake
