    Default How to change my forum name

    How does one do this please?

    A certain friend did some research on my name and it could be seen as somewhat offensive

    wench is from the old English, short for wenchel, which means child or young woman ...nothing offensive there, we call girls (when they are being mischievious) wench still where I live

    As far as I know you can't change your profile name, I was told you would have to set up a new account....But I could be wrong...Which I tend to be....lol

    I just thought you and Dianne (Moonbeam) had some inside joke going on. I didn't take offense or think anything bad of you because of the user name you picked.

    Hello!

    Unfortunately, there is no way to change a user name once it is active. You can try signing up for a new account with a different user name.

    Thanks for the question!
