Like the title says, I'm looking to see if there's any way I can change my forums username at all.

If any of the moderators or staff can provide some insight, it would be well appreciated.

Sincerely,

KushyDragon

    Click on your name, at the top right of the window.
    Click on the "Edit Profile" button, at the top right of the page that opens.
    Enter a new username in the first field of the form that opens.

    I think you can only change your username on the forums once, so think carefully before doing it.
    If you've already changed your name once, and want to do it again, you're going to have to PM the forum admin (Arwoo) for help.

    You can change it once every 6 months.

    Well, I've tried to hover over the change username part, but it gives a red sign when hovered over to change it.

    Also I'll see about PMing Arwoo about this.

    I had this name years ago, I just recently got back onto the forums and I didn't know you could name change for the forums in the first place.

    While I am open to provide a name change for anyone on the forums, please do not abuse this.
    I won't ask too much for the first request, but after that you'd better have a good reason!

    Well the reason I'm requesting a name change is because I only had one on the old forums and It's time for a change. :D

    Does this mean the name change option in the "Edit Profile" page has been disabled?

    I think it may be that way sadly. Maybe because people were abusing it.

    How does one "abuse" something they can only do once every six months?

    And if it was intentionally disabled, why is it even still on that page? (Obviously I don't expect you to know the answer to that one, it's directed towards Arwoo)

    It's probably just broken or not configured, like much else on the forums.
