I searched through the forum, but couldn't find information about this one. Is it possible to do so? Been a longtime poster, and would like to be able to change it. My username was taken from my first email from middle school, hence the "kirby"... was a big fan at the time, lol)

I've been using "Coduscus" in other forums and such, and it would make my day if an admin from on high could help me out or point me in the right direction ^_^

I had my username changed on a whim just by asking an admin (SSD), so...

It's possible, but kind of a pain so we don't like to do it flippantly.

Changing the username is easy (the forum software does it); fixing up all the mentions of the name is the tricky bit (that involves directly editing the underlying database).

Wouldnt mind just the simple forum software change if someone would want to help me out. I've never been mentioned specifically (maybe 1 or 2 quote replies), and my proposed name is similar enough that I think people could put two and two together on the few posts I'm mentioned. I guess I should say I've been a long time lurker rather than poster, although hoping to change that soon.

Like Tines mentioned, the re-coding part is a bit of a pain so that can't be as easily done. Ornette can explain the nitty gritty better than me.

You've been mentioned/quoted 29 times, which isn't really that many and would be pretty quick to replace in the database. But until new forum software comes around, this isn't really something we want to get into the habit of doing. But I can do it some late night when forum is less active when I have the time.

Could a mod please change my subtitle? "God" has me feeling a bit uncomfortable.

Count me surprised though to learn that there was a rank higher than the last one... I forget, was it "Seed"?

I ended up creating a new account (reckless attitude), I now realize that just contacting the administrators before that, I think my current name is more pleasant and combines better with the Universe of this forum, I think 'Magneto' is a bit off To order, but now I did this, just waiting to delete it from my old account.
