    Between insane and insecure
    Only an Admin and or a Supervisor can change a username.

    PMing an Admin for name change is a bad idea.

    Oh? Did they change the policy? Like I know Costello doesn't do name changes, but don't the Supervisor still do? Or was that like a whole supervisor-admin type thing?

    The policy is that we generally don't unless it's warranted, and not much is. We will soon be simplifying the policy to make it clearer.
