AFAICT if you click on your (current) username and select "Profile" you should/may see an Edit Profile option. IJDK if it works for "ordinary users".

Feedback from a quite extraordinary "ordinary user"...

No, it doesn't. ( Username is the key field at the top of User Control Panel - Edit account settings. It is not a modifiable field.)

Not by us lowly moderators, you can pester us all you want, we cannot change usernames. It needs a global database change to do that.

You might have better luck contacting the forum masters, by e-mailing info@raspberrypi.org

You see the column ABOUT US on the bottom of the page?
The last item in the list is Contact us.
Click on that, and fill in your message.

p.s. corrected a small and obvious typo in e-mail address.

But, but, why not just register yourself again with a user name you like better and forget about the old one?

I guess registering multiple times is frowned upon but if you intend never to use the old name again then why not?

I saw just now that i can't use my e-mail-adresse instead of my username too... ;-)

On many software you can use both of them.

Personally I hate the idea of using an email address as a user name or identity.

They are two totally unrelated thing.

Whoever thought that was a good idea?
