You can change it by PM-ing a Admin or mod

The general response is unless you've a relatively major reason, or the change is only minor, no. But if it's something you're desperate for, try PMing the relevant staff member (you can check on the staff page).

yeah, a friend of mine changed his. I might change mine to pinky to reflect the other site I'm a part of, but I like godreborn more. ;)
I will update my status here if anything changes, and go from there.

PM a supervisor with your case, and they'll decide whether you can or not.

Generally speaking, if you're a "well known" user with a lot of posts/generally "popular", usually changing your username isn't allowed. This is to avoid confusion on the forums from old posts and such. But it also depends on the supervisor.

usually they will let you change your name if you have a very few amount of posts or want to capitalize letters in your name

I don't know much about xenforo (though I did look in the admin cp briefly on another site), but if this was a vb site, it's very easy to change the name. it takes literally no time, so I think the issue is many people asking to change their name.

Contact a SUPERVISOR, not a moderator.

And it all depends on reason, similarity to the old name, post count (aka how well known the user is) and so on.

It's not a technical forum issue, it's because it would be confusing for everyone if people changed usernames all the time.

I figured that was the reason based on my earlier post. I keep my avatar on both this site and psx-place so everyone knows it's me. fyi, I love pink floyd. ;)

    i may not be a good homebrew dev yet but i personally think gridlauncher was much much better than the shit, bog standard homebrew menu

    it had way more personality, the standard homebrew menu feels like an 3ds applet, developed quickly and without any quirks

    too bad luma just so happens to completely break gridlauncher , and the fact that it's not maintained anmore

    hell, even the wii homebrew menu gives me heavy nostalgia, even if it's barely, if at all customiable, but the 3ds
    homebrew launcher is ass
