    I would like to change my username but see no way to do this. Do I need to register as a new user?

    I'm not sure how the database is run, or even if there is a direct interface to it by the administrator. If there is a database interface, it can be done, but it has to be done directly in the table via SQL. If not, your best bet is going to be to simply create a new account as ask that the administrator either disable or remove your old account.

    Besides, you only have 4 posts so it isn't like you are going to lose this whole archive of posts attributed to you if you adopt a new user name.

    Changing the name could be done by SQL commands, but there's an option where the admin can let all users have the ability to change their name. It's just...something that some people don't like...however...it does take your new name to every post you ever made under the old name...
