There seems to be only one way to do it: close your account and open a new one. Lots of forumites hate their nics, but no go.

This already chaotic forum would be unusable if everyone was free to change their nicks whenever they felt like it.

There should still be a procedure whereby we can reasonably do so.We are the paying clients.Looks like the tail is wagging the dog.

Agree...It should be allowed...Guys who have used their seq numbers as their nicknames have surely been able to change them.

I like that we can't change nics - having been around a while now, its nice to have gotten to "know" the main forumites. At least when I see a post, I kinda have an idea on the trading style of the poster and can gauge how I take the input. I still think Chartist should be allowed to return though ....

You also get to know who the idiots are and avoid posts/replies by them.
