    Sorry but the short answer is no, you cannot change your user name. You would have to open/register a new name/account.

    How about just capitalizing my "J" and "P" please?

    That is changing the user name; does not matter if it is one letter or two or all of them.

    Have you tried preregistering and starting all over??

    Just did a search for "JIMP" AND "JimP" no difference with or without caps.
    All posts still come up.
    Just would like to have it that way for aesthetics.
    A few folks chided me on it over the years.
    Don't need to toss away going on 12 years membership.

    You did a search but did you specify in the search to "match case"?? They might call it "Exact name" on this message board.

    Did you try logging in using the alternate username that you are thinking of switching over to?? Let us know if you can log in using JimP instead of jimp.

    No problem logging in with all 3...
    jimp, JimP, or JIMP...same password.

    Welcome screen has the lower case all 3 times but the login is accepted.

    Happy New Year everyone...
