Names

You should be able to change your username. Very simple change. Personally, I don't want to be 508Parkour anymore, but I don't want to restart and delete all of my posts.

User names are not user-changable. this makes people accountable for their posts which is an important aspect of providing value to the larger community. anyone considering registering on this forum should pick a username they are serious about. this forum is very liberal compared to many other forums out there but one important thing we want to maintain as much as possible is usefulness and value. there are not many forums that allow users to change their usernames.

I agree with you very much Plexus. I spend a lot of time trying to help out users as much as possible and cherish every +1 point I get. Otherwise users can just use and abuse. After all that just change their names. Good work with the site Plexus as well as all the other moderators. I give you all +1!!

I totally agree with Plexus and Reprap on this. Changing names should be a big deal and rarely done. I have seen user names changed by the mods on other forums only in extraordinary circumstances.

Printrbot original. Major mods: Y axis extended to ~8", Z extended to ~8.5". 5mm SS Z threaded rods w/ flex couplings. E3D hotend. Purchased Acetel gears. Glass bed with Elmers' purple glue stick for most prints. Top of Z axis rods have added cross structure similar to a Prusia i3.

If you look at it that way, I can definetly see a point.
