Great - I'll send you a pm to change mine as well - was told some years ago it wasn't possible to change the login username  :-\

Just a query re change of user name as Sinann did. Does that mean you can change your username as often as you want? If you change your user name, does that change on all your previous posts as well, as that could be very confusing?

The profile name and display name can be different but this is best avoided unless you can remember them both.
