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.

Though I sit in darkness,

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?
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

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.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6
