Possible to change user name?


This perhaps is a really silly question, but my user name reflects the previous company I worked for, and I would like to change my user name. There does not seem to be an option for that in the user control panel. Does anyone know if that is possible?

Check out my game W.E.L.D.E.R. in the App Store.

With only 44 posts i would simply create a new account (and we'll lock your old one down).

An admin, such as Eli, can change your name easily.
Send him a message and maybe your wish is fulfilled. Especially when you're on the developers side.
Tho, a name change only happens very very rarely. For a good reason.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
