I wish I knew how, but took a look at my own and did not see an option to change user name. This may be a job for an admin. Good luck!

Correct. Users cannot change their username (so choose wisely!)
On the other hand I would not hold my breath expecting an admin to change it either.
But they may help in this case.

You can contact admin, they are super nice people, in your case they may help you to change it.

yup, I think they may help since your user name could be considered sensitive information.

Send a private message to either Administrator or Carolina Yankee, and ask them if they could please change it.

Hi The advice to contact Administartors is correct and if you look at the very very very bottom of this page , there is actually a link to contact member admin with your request.
CONTACT US
I assume this is necessary to know occasionally.
And even better would be to read all the info that was included when you originally agreed to join Mouseowners And it included pertinent advice such as do not use personal private info... , etc.
I honestly do not remember reading all of this when I joined but I have learned a lot from Mouseowners.

Hope you get this fixed soon.

P.s. I will try to recognize you with that Nova Scotia , don’t want you to be a stranger all over again with 40 posts.

I'll put my standard disclaimer here:

It makes us *extremely grumpy* to change a person's user name. It can lead to confused identity and accusations of fraud attempts, particularly if somebody has been active on the RTB forums.

It should also be common sense to not use personal identifiers as user names. The form is fairly clear.

Administrator takes the weekends off and I'm super busy this weekend, so not likely to make any changes before Monday.

OP can PM one or both of us and see who responds first.

Dirk

My suggestion since you only have 40 user posts with this user name would be to just create a new user account and stop using this user name.

That's my 2 cents. If I were in your shoes that's what I would do.
