    Silly Question!-Can you change your name on here?

    My user name on the side is tea for two, can I change it or not?
    Sorry if this question sounds really dumb.

    Not a dumb question, but no, you can't change your user name.

    A quote from one of the Moderators in the thread started because of the same question:

    Although it's been done on a very rare occasion, it is not something we normally do. The reason is simply that members would be asking to have their names changed every time they changed horses or for other reasons. It makes things very confusing and it's very time consuming.

    As for just abandoning the old ID and forming a new account ... that is also frowned upon. It has been done in the past and once discovered, members have been banned - all on a case by case basis, of course.

    So seems that in very rare occasions it has happened but the basic answer is no you can't.
