Name change?
« on: April 02, 2012, 05:03:37 PM »
How exactly does one go about changing their name here on the forum? I remember there used to be an option for it under Profile > Account Related Settings, and it worked before (my username was not originally Dan the Man) but I no longer seem to have access to it.

I believe that the person you would contact now is Fr. George, though he may direct you to Fr. Anastasios (not sure)...

Can't you go to Account Related Settings in your Profile and change the name that is visible to the public?

LOL!  OK.  I can see it!  ;)

Thanks Asteriktos, I'll go ahead and do that. :)

I always used to be able to. Doesn't look like it anymore though.  :-\ Is there a one name-change limit perhaps?

In the past we've limited the reasons for changing one's display name; PM me and we'll discuss it.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
