        I'm sorry to bring this thread back from the dead... but I just wanted to know if doing what Floris said had any possible reprecussions, as far as damaging the database? I don't know why I've always been afraid of changing peoples usernames, but could someone please tell me if this is a stupid concern of mine or not? Thank you very much.

          As far as I know everything runs off the userid rather than the username so there shouldn't be any repurcussions.
          When in doubt, give it a clout :D

              If you're going to change a username I would first double-check that the new username isn't currently in use by another member.

                Yes, Floris' post is the correct way to change a username.
