Request for a username change.


I was wondering if I could get a username change from "Vm." to "Vishruth" if it's not too much trouble.

Thanks in advance...

My apologies for the trouble if it's against the forum policy to ask for username changes.

Email such requests to the site admin who is Jeremy.

I thought of doing that, but I didn't think it appropriate to hit his mail box for what would probably appear to him to be such a trivial reason. I already tried to PM him, but looks like things have changed a bit here. I'll mail him.

Thanks.

Well first of all, PM is only for Admins and Contributing Members.. and well, I find it innappropiate for members to request name changes, I'd only find it appropiate if you have a really good reason to change your username you registered with, especially since you only have 3 posts at this time. What is your reason?

I already knew about why I couldn't send PMs anymore. When I tried to send a PM, the forum told me that I had to be a contributing member to be able to use the PM feature. But thanks for the info. It's not an option for me to become a contributing member right now because I don't have a credit card. Perhaps it's possible to pay via paypal somehow... I'll see what I can find out.

And as for why I want my username changed... My username is "Vishruth" in all the other forums I participate actively in. It would help me to keep my forum username here in sync with my usernames in the other forums I participate in. I am hoping to post more often here. I wouldn't have asked for the change if I didn't plan to post more often here. I don't want to trouble you guys for nothing... really.

EDIT:

Just received Jeremy's mail. My thanks to Jeremy for the change.
