When I originally chose my username, I thought I would do a witty play on words by picking Wallstreetatheist because I do not believe in the money-seeking businesses of the United States; hence, I am a Wall Street atheist. However, many people mistakenly believe that I am an atheist because of my username, so I want to change it to WallStreetMuslim for the purpose of clarity and personal utility. Does anyone know how I could go about effecting this change?

When I signed up, like a month ago, I was told that you cannot change your user name. Which makes sense, so you can't pretend to be someone else and confuse people.

So, unless things changed with the new look, I don't think there is a way you can change it.

That's what you get for being clever ;)

Do what I did, close your account and start again.

Microsuck asked me to do this for him. I did not do it because if I did it for one I would have to do it for all. Also there are risks of db collisions when changing usernames as well. So the best solution is to close your current account and start over.

Thanks guys, I've decided to just keep my account as is to 1) keep my debate records, 2) keep my forum post number, and 3) not confuse the poop out of people. The ability to change one's username (let's say once every year/6 months) would be a cool feature to add to the site in the future in a way that doesn't cause db collisions.
