How to change the username


Forgive me for the silly question.
I out, by mistake, my email address as username and now it is showed in every post I write.
I have tried to change it but I can`t.
How can I do it?
Is there any way more then deleting my profile and starting again form skretch?
Thanks

I recall a similar quesstion recently, and as I recall the answer was to use the "Contact Us" link (bottom of every page when logged in), explain that you would like to change the user name, and why, and they will take care of it for you.

There is no way to change it yourself, and you cannot delete your account after miking a post.
