How can I change my user name?

Now that the election is over, I would like to un-tether myself from RMoney.

1. In the past, the admins of the site have offered an amnesty period after

major events like a presidential election.

But I haven't seen any indication that they are doing that (yet?).

I think your only option is to contact them directly with your request, but I know you are not the only one who wants this.

2. Do you have another address under which you can open a DU account?

Many sock-puppets do.

3. I'm a star member

and would not be if I created a new account.

Did you mean for your post to come off as insulting?

4. No. I saw this well worn solution much used over the past decade

BTW, do you wanna hold your star over my head?

The new account is a simple solution to many problems including being tombstoned or PPR'd

I understand you may want every penny's worth of your subscription donation. And the Admin, and Grovelbot, thank-you for your contributions.

5. hardly

my point was that I prefer to just change my name rather than create an account. There is also the fact that secondary accounts or sock puppets violate TOS.

6. I bow to your integrity

Nevertheless, DU3 really has fundamentally changed a lot of things surrounding ethical and even polite DUer behavior...

For the most part we operate in a system based onlyy on voluntary compliance and amorphous community enforced standards.

It's likely that only Agent Mike would notice that your identity profile looks the same under 2 different usernames.

7. goclarkObama here

I was a big supporter of Wesley Clark's when I joined
DU.

One day I just decided to honor my all time hero when he did something extra special.

Then I sign off as...

8. I really would like to change my name...

It appears I must email one of the admins for this too happen. Whom do I email? I really would like to be in some of the discussions but its time for me to shake this name...
