When I created an account on here a couple of weeks ago, I put my full name instead of a nickname, not realising it would act as my username, and it looks a bit daft.

Can I request a name change please ?

I've tried messaging admin but it says I don't have the privileges to do so, so thought I'd ask here.

Thanks !

Hello Gavin,

You should try PMing a supervisor, as well as perhaps trying to PM the other admin of the site.
You can see a full list of the supervising and administrating staff from this list: http://gbatemp.net/staff/

Hope this helps and good luck getting your name changed!

Hmm, well I have heard of recent renovations to newcomers' accounts that do not let you have access to the PM feature until you have a certain number of posts. (10, I think? Maybe more.)

Try leaving a message on their profile if all else fails. Alternatively, they will take a look at this thread and PM you themselves.

I was wondering whether it was something like this. - Thanks for clearing that up.

Luckily enough I'm not always home :P

I'm already killing the moderation charts :creep:
You wear that medal of honor with pride. You make Captian america look like a scrub. You don't even need a shield, you don't even work for shield, but you might as well start with that reputation. Ahh marvel jokes. :)

You gonna be all like "TEMPERS ASSEMBLE!":mthr:

Oh gosh, is it really possible to change old usernames?
I made this account long ago with this username, but I really find it demeaning now that I've grown up.
Is there any possible way change my username?

Yes, typically by PM'ing a moderator. In this case OP is a new member and there's new PM restrictions apparently. Changed mine a few months back that way.

EDIT: Of course, there's a mod right in this thread, so a mod should be easy to find....

Sure, go ahead and request one.

We can only do name-changes for people with a small number of posts, before everyone starts going crazy.
