    Members can't change it themselves. You could PM Greg, or write the new name that you want here, and he'll probably change it for you.

    I wouldn't try it more than once though, so I'd make sure you pick one that is something you'll want to stick with.

    k guys thanks a lot..actually this is my usual nick for most forums ...but i thought it doesn't go well with a physics forum, where i am seeking help usually rather than debating (or spamming :P )

    But why aren't members allowed to do so?
    and where can I find Greg ?

    Members can't change their own usernames since then they'd do it all the time, and it would be incredibly annoying, and confusing for everyone involved!

    You can find Greg under the "staff" button at the top of the page.

    For your information:

    Greg Bernhardt Profile
    Send Greg Bernhardt PM

    Or alternatively, as people suggested, write the willing new username on this thread and wait. :smile:

    As a rule, only gold or established members may change their name. With over 140,000 members, Greg could probably spend all day working for free.
