Hi James,

You can change the username by going to and clicking on Change name, Initials or Bio.

Hope this helps,


i am still having problems. i managed to correct the misspelled full name which is now "James McGough" but i had to change the user name to "james_mcgough", this is unacceptable. i want my user name to be jamesmcgough without a space. i received an error message that did not permit me to reset to the user name to what i desire.

What is the error message you are returning? You aren't using any invalid characters or spaces, if the name username is not already taken it shouldn't be an issue.
