Not me neither!
I sent Pottsy a PM right after I joined the forum, and he changed it for me.

Look when the first post was made to the thread! It was over 2 years ago! Basegreen has made a few posts since may 2006

I don't know why the thread has been necro-bumped, though.

I believe that the changing of a user name is very time consuming in this forum.
A few have had it done..but only with a few posts.
The old user name has to be removed manually one by one.
A 'PM' to Pottsy might be prudent in your case (13 posts)

Don't you guys have access to the database? I know the structure a bit from these kind of forums and everything should be in a database.

f.e.: i'm anti-rsca, my userID is let us say 100, when i post a message the name next to that post says anti-rsca, but in fact the message in the database says that it comes from userID 100, with a few lines of code, it puts anti-rsca instead of 100

If you need to change your user name please PM Pottsy the site administrator and I am sure he will try and help.

I have access to the database.

The issue is twofold. Firstly it is very confusing for readers (especially regulars) to have a user change name. Secondly, whilst changing the username is exactly as you specify, all the quoted text from that user by other users hold the username in text format - so all those posts have to be manually changed. Also any reference to that user (eg HappyMan referred to as HM in a post). Hence my reluctance for users with plenty of posts!
