Kinda late now but can I change my username's spelling?

I'm mojowork_n which is meant to be read as "MoJoWork'n" but
I don't think it always works. Are apostrophe's permitted characters
in usernames?

OK to update to that, or is it a no-go or too much trouble?

Maybe "MoJoWorkN?" No apostrophe, upper case N?

Just a thought.

1. There have been two prior name-change events in DU history.

Name change amnesty, it was called.

Some changed their names, others did not, but except in extreme cases where for safety or other reasons admins allowed a member to change a name, one is not provided a means by which to change their user name.

AFAIK

You could open a new account and close your old one, however.

5. How do you "close your old one"?

I can't seem to find that option. Thanks.

6. You can't do it, but you can ask that it be done. Here's how:

First, send a PM or email to any or all of the contacts on this page: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=contact

Explain there exactly what you propose to do by starting a new account and wanting to delete the old one.

Then, log out and create a new identity, username, password, etc., and begin using it.

I would recommend then sending the identical PM or email to the same people (EarlG and Elad, for example) explaining that you've created the new identity, what your new user name is, and to please deactivate the old account.

Lot's of words but not that hard to do.

Cheers!

7. How about "MoJoWorkin" or "MoJoWorken"?

I like the first idea better....

9. FWIW, I know what you mean by your current username.

Maybe just stick with it...
