Is there any way of changing my Geekzone username? When I first joined the website a few years ago I didn't use my standard username because I wanted to respond to some questions about my employer's product and so wanted to remain anonymous. Now I've left their employment I'd like to change to the username I normally use so people can recognise me.

I can see it's not possible on the "Edit Profile" page, but is there anyone who can do this for me? The alternative is to set up a new account which seems a bit drastic.

Thanks for any help.

By the way, I don't like changing usernames for any light reason. Once you create your "persona" around here people already know your chosen name. It's not a good thing changing usernames just for the sake of it.

People should use something meaningful for them, and stick to it.
