As I obviously would want to do since for some reason my old e-mail address is my name.

Perhaps it takes a little while before the changes are applied?

You will see I have changed my nickname from Ksarul to lurask - just for you!!

I think you may have to log out and back into your account before it shows up.

I shall be changing it back shortly - it feels very "driew"

Thanks for the information. I never meant for my email address to be my nickname, but I was too lazy to change it after I started making posts. I like using my full name, since that's how all my books and articles are listed.

So for all my friends, trolls and stalkers on the boards: taylorm@hsu.edu is now michaelraytaylor.

I've been debating about changing mine. I used the same username as I use on Twitter, so I keep thinking maybe I should keep it separate. Anyone have a thought on that?
