I wanted to change my username to Josh but it's already taken. I searched and found the guy. He's not even active and no guarentee that he will log in again. Can I be given the name or my name can be changed to "Josh."?

Waiting for a reply.

Do you mean your log-in name (that is only used by you when you log in) or your display name (which is what everyone sees).

You can change your own display name, so just find one that's

We could change that other Josh's display name, but we'd need a good reason. I'm sure you can find a display name that has not been taken.

We don't change log-in usernames, really. Certainly not without the user's consent, because they would not be able to log in if they tried.

I am asking to change my Display name to Josh. He's not that active. He has only posts with no guareentee to return. Please change his name to Josh. and change mine to Josh, if possible.

^This. Just find a way around. We try to be as user-centric as possible, and should that guy come back (we can't guarantee that he won't) he might be slightly annoyed that we changed his name. Just suck it up. What's to guarantee that you won't disappear tomorrow and never come back?

Jim was more closely related to what you told me, but I'm just saying, It's better to not be changing info about yourself if you want people to trust in you, and believe you are who you say you are. To me, that's fundamental in online communication. Once people don't know who's who using the same name, etc. Handing out information is likely to just be disregarded as false and misleading. I was upset when my Facebook details wound up elsewhere, but that's what they've been saying about the Internet and Privacy all along, you wind up being found out one way or another.

Well, I hope you settled it...finally

Yeah, I did. I think you should change yours too and that dumb avatar too. I changed it back to JimmyT.
