I want to change my username back to my original username.

  1. I recently changed my username. I did not read the fine print as carefully as was advised, and therefore did not realize I couldn't get the original username back. I do want to use the original username, however. Are there any options for me?

  2. I'm sorry, that's not possible.

    You can change the name displayed on your posts and comments by changing the "display name" on your Personal Settings admin panel:
