Can a username be changed?

Postby xochimilco » 16 Aug 2013, 21:26

I made a typo in my username. It's supposed to be xochimilco, not xpchimilco. Is it possible to change it? I'm already involved in several games, so I can't just cancel my account and re-open it with the correct username. Can anybody please advise?

I believe it's possible, but bends the space-time continuum/requires much effort, so isn't usually done.

<sigh> we do NOT like doing it, but it can be done. The reason we hesitate is it requires a bit of work on the part of our resident programming guru Super_Dipsy going into the guts of the software.

...but I prefer it to having to deal with all the alarms that go off if a player opens a second account. I will forward this request to Dipsy, and when he comes on-line (He's in Britannia) he will advise.
Very clever, Mr. Smart...
