Change user name?

Hello. Is there a way to change username on MobileRead such that all the stuff from the old username attaches to the new username, including previous threads and posts, karma, etc, as if there were no change in username? Just poof, my username transforms into a different one.

Thank you, dreams. Good to know. I'd better think about names for awhile first.

Just don't forget to broadcast it somehow, so that we will know who you are!

Heh. It'd be more fun, unannounced.

I think it would be obvious; we just have to look back at this thread to see the name used for the initial posting (or any of the other posts in it by unboggling).

True. If people thought to look. But not true anymore, because I just edited the OP to remove the current username and example new usernames that gave a clue. Anyway, people with good memories would probably figure it out from my device list and location. I could change those too. Heh.

Oh, drats. Foiled again. By your use of my current username above. No, don't edit it out, I was kidding around about keeping it secret.

When I remember it right from other members changing their user name (and if the forum software was not changed on this) your original username will keep as "unboggling" in the quoting boxes whereever someone quoted one of your posts in the past.

It will, yes, because that's just text which is put there at the time that you do the quote.

Huh. That makes sense. Strange, I've been oblivious to that. I would've thought I would notice something that obvious.

Of course, anyone foliowing my ongoing thread could notice a username change, just because they notice it change suddenly.
