Assuming it works the same way now as it did on the old forums, you'd normally have to wait three months and then just change it yourself in your control panel. A mod might be willing to make a minor spelling change like that for you, though, so you could wait until one sees this thread or be proactive and bother one about it.

The name changing hack has not been installed yet; mods can still change your name, however. I'll go do it in a sec.

The button: I did not see it. So uh. either how to do that changed or... no we can't? I know we can't edit profiles: we can get to the edit profile screen but it won't let me do anything.

Just wondering, how would you change your username? I've been thinking about doing so yet I can't find it in the User CP.

You'll have to ask Butterfree or a mod.

Butterfree said in another thread that that hasn't been reimplemented yet. Quite honestly, it probably isn't a priority.

That hack hasn't been installed yet, I believe. If you ask a mod, they might change it for you.

Mods can't change usernames either, only admins can. Or at least, last I checked it was so; you never know, with Butterfree's laziness.

This is not the case. If you ask a mod, the mod will probably tell you, "I CAN'T FIND THE BUTTON STOP ASKING."
