    Oops. That is quite a limitation. Perhaps Ubuntu forums can consider signing on with either a username and/or the logon email address. That way the second option can safely subsume the limitation of the forum till the point they are able to build over the limitation.

    I do not understand the point you are trying to make. It is a standard feature of vbulletin that only admins can change usernames. This is to prevent abuse, which would undoubtedly occur were it to be allowed. I've checked in phpbb, another very popular forum software, and users are unable to change their usernames in that as well. True also for the default settings in Wordpress (blogging) and Drupal (content management) - only admins can change usernames.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.

    Oh Cool. Where do I then submit a request for change of username?

    Maybe if you ask nicely.

    As a general rule, we don't do username changes.

    Can you guide me to a support ticket page to change the username?

    The appropriate place to request a name change is in the Resolution Center. I have moved your thread. Now, considering Post#2, and the sticky, why would you like your username changed?

    "Personal Preference" is the primary reason the policy was implemented.
    I can disable this account if you'd like to create a new one...
