Hi Michael

You can't change your username as such without asking Trystan. You can add a name that will appear instead of your user name
 If you go to your Profile and click on 'membership related settings', you'll see a space below username called Name - just add a name there and add your password, etc and click 'change profile'.


Gadget is my name but not my username ::) ::) ::)

PS I did ask for Gadget to become my username a while ago but I think something must have happened to my request or something. It's not that important though, so I'm not botheed.

I've had a look Gadget and it doesn't give me the option of changing my 'User Name'.....never mind, it's not a problem.....it was just that it is no longer relevant to me..Thanks for the input..I might just change my name that everyone sees though to 'M72'.... ;D ;D ;)

Just a bit of extra info:

If you have surnames on SIT, you'll have to let BB know because I don't think it works properly when you change your username   name.

Hi Gadget,
                  pleased to meet you,it's much nicer to answer to a real name,and not a bunch of initials.Oonagh.
