Is there any way to change my username in this forum? I can see how to change password or email adress but not the username. Help appreciated :D

Just set-up a new name and abandon this one, that's easier for everyone.

Yep, because otherwise someone has to find a board admin, find out if they can rename users, then report back to you. That may be impossible, it's certainly fairly difficult.

Just curious: why don't you like your username.
Perhaps the word has an "altenrative" meaning in the English language that I am not aware of? :)

I just wanted to give myself a more rowing related name. As my current nickname is the one I use in my book forum. But no problem of it's too much of an effort.

In the French language bas-son means low-sound.
It's the name of the lowest sounding woodwind instrument.

Ah, education for the unwashed masses! Wasn’t aware of the French spelling of the English bassoon. Live and learn, another successful day! Thanks Willy.

Well, I'm playing the bassoon. In 2005, I was registering to the other forum. And just forgot the second 'o' :lol:
When I wanted to change the username the original name was already assigned.

So there is a link! I wondered if that was the case :)
It's a small world, I also play the bassoon (as an amateur).
