We tend to accept the vast majority of user names on this site, but that acceptance has its limits. If your choice is one which is offensive to the average, reasonable user, it will be reviewed, and you may be asked to change it. If you fail to do so, your account may be restricted until you comply.
If you're logged in, you can change your user name on the Preferences page. User names can be no greater than 12 characters.
The page can also be reached from the "Members" link at the top of the Favorite Forums and All Forums pages.
Your points and other details will be preserved.
Caution: If you make three name changes within a 30-day period, you WILL NOT be able to make another change for an additional 30 days.
