    Most Funsters don't change their username at all. But lots of newbies join with a real name and want it changed or they have spelled it wrongly. Sometimes older members who have a username to do with a pet or a motorhome they no longer have ask for it to be changed etc. This requires me to manually alter the database and there is no record of the changes and it's time consuming.

    To reduce my time spent, I have made it possible for you to change your own name. Should you do this, a post will be made informing everyone of the change, and a public record of the change made in your profile page. You may change your name a maximum of three times. You can access the name change feature in your personal settings. Its pretty straight forward. Choose a unique new name, confirm it and it's done (y)

    Yours faithfully

    Colin

    That's really going to confuse me.
    It's bad enough that @DuxDeluxe changes his avatar every day. Now he'll be changing his username as well.

    Might think of changing mine as we no longer have a 6 berth, might still use BB.

    If someone is on your ignore list and they change their user name will it automatically update?
