A couple of new members registered for accounts today, apparently missing the notices about using both a first and a last name in member accounts. I deleted those accounts and asked them to re-register. Since then, I did some research and found a plugin, which I had to pay for, which would allow a member to change his or her username. If you are already using a first and a last name here, I am not encouraging you to change your name, and I am allowing only one name change. I wanted to mention it because you may notice that option in your profile, and it is okay with me if you should choose to change your username at some point, as long as you continue to use a first name and a last name, which do not necessarily have to be your real name. I set this option up for anyone else who might register under something other than a first and a last name, and I would like to apologize to those who have had to re-register under another account. Changing usernames is not an option provided by the forum software; this is something that I have had to add. By the way, I am requesting the use of a first name and a last name so that conversations might flow more fluidly, as if we were real people rather than avatars.
