Nope. Can't. Only if it is a small change like capitalization or something. I had my "S" capitalized.

Really? Cuz I know that My2Geldings (for instance) was M2G when I first joined, then became CacheDownTaxes (or something like that...) and is now back to M2G... Maybe she's just special. =)

I hope we can! I was luvmyperch when I joined, but now that Noah's gone, I'd really like to change it to something else... It's still upsetting when I see my user name!

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.

It is usually done for the wrong reasons. We've had some members who were banned and tried to come back with different IDs. We've had members who created a different ID and used that one to cause havoc. We've had members who created a different ID and used the new one to bolster the esteem of the original.

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea.

Oh I see. but what if I deleted this account and created a new one because I want a new username? I probably won't but if I ended up doing that, would I get banned?

Read the post above yours, that is an example why our policy is not to change IDs.

Folks, I'm closing this thread because I've given you the reasons why we don't change IDs and to keep asking and offering reasons and "what if" is pointless.
