    Ive contacted 4 moderators to no luck in getting instructions as to how to change my name. Id like to do this so my name doesnt show up in google search for privacy reasons.

    Ive asked ov er the past two months concerning this, I realize I can make another account but I felt that would be sleazy way of doing it. So i wish to respect the site and do it the right way, plz get back to me

    Making a topic here isn't the best way to ask. Go bug someone in IRC about it.

    And lily, you changed my name...

    If you really care, you'll make a new account, changing your name doesn't do anything but let people know what your new user name is.

    name changes are not welcome. It confuses people.
    Just come up with a good name when you sign up, it clearly states that on the registration form: once you choose your username, it cannot be changed!
