Possible to change forum username?


I've recently returned to LQ after some years away, and I'd like to change my username (to 'thinknix') so that it is consistent across my online accounts.

After reading the FAQ entry I made the request via the site contact form but did not get a response. I waited a week and sent another request in. It's possible I did not wait long enough (a week and a few days), but I couldn't find any indication from prior posters of how long they waited, so I figured I'd ask here for the change.

I can confirm we've not received anything via the contact form. Can you try again and let me know if you receive any errors?

Looks like there was an issue impacting a small number of contact form submissions. I apologize for the inconvenience, can you resend? If any other members haven't received a response, please also resend.
