Help is here! wink

I requested a name change awhile back. I floundered around in settings for a long time, wondering why I wasn't seeing a place to change my name.

Turns out, you have to use the "contact us" link at the bottom of the page and have an admin do it for you. Just send them a note and they should have it done in no time. When I contacted them, I think it was changed for me within an hour.

Yes, congrats! heart

As Lisa said, go down to the bottom right corner of any screen.  Under "company" click on "contact us", then use the Feedback option to talk to the Admin Team.

As mentioned, name changes are not an item that members can fix themselves...contact PBS admin.  We also hear there's a limited number of times they will do this for you.

We need to contact PBS for all name and nickname changes. This way they have a record. They are quite willing to do it for marriages, divorces, and improving our security. But just changing our nickname? Probably not.

I asked to have mine changed not long ago.  I hated my first one.  I asked very nicely and explained why I wanted a change and they did it for me.  I know there have been a couple of other people who were able to change their nickname.  I think you can only do it once though.
