Hi, anyway an admin can change my account name or it's impossible?

Thanks in advance.

It can be done. Send me a PM with the name you want to change to one of the admins (jdong, KiwiNZ or ubuntu-geek). As soon as one of them is available they should be able to take care of this for you.

I was recently asked this question again with a reference to this thread. The policy was changed sometime after this question was originally asked. The Forum FAQ says this:

Can I change my username?
No. Usernames can not be changed - dashes can not be added, lowercase cannot be made uppercase, etc. However, you may choose to create a new account and then request that we disable the original one. The only exceptions to this are extreme cases, such as when a user has been harassed by another user or when the username contains the member's email address or real name.
Note: If you do make a new account, you will have to transfer all information yourself, as we will not do this for you. Also, we can't transfer your statistics (beans, account age and the like) to the new account.
