Easy. PM Nate with a reason why and the desired username and most of the time he does it. :)

apologies that roll of my tongue, smoothquick, like 'r's
or maybe like pocket candy
that's just a bit too sweet.

In addition to Nate, you can also message Meshugenah & Firestarter. Global Moderators are also able to change usernames.

Username changes should really only be done if you are considering starting a new account just for the name. These folks tend to be unhappy if you want to change your username for fun. So if you're going to ask for a name change, be ready to stick with it for several months, preferably years.

Unfortunately, having spaces in one's username is no longer allowed! If you see folks with spaces, it's because they were around before the rule was enacted.

You can use other forms of separating your username, though! Periods, underscores, and other kinds of punctuation can be used to split it up.

How do you change your username? My top choices are LonelyMelody and LostMemories.

@TheSingingWonder - Despite this thread being 7 years old, it's still pretty much correct! Just PM a Global Moderator (anyone in dark green) with the username you want to change to, and they'll do it for you. Keep in mind you can only change your username once every six months, so be sure it's one you really want. ;)
