I wasnt thinking when I first joined the beehive so I used my first name in my screen name and realized that nobody else really did that, and you never know who will read your posts that you wouldnt want them to. Is there any way of changing it, i tried ‘edit’ and there is no option for it, i dont want to delete this name I have now and loose all my posts…help

I’m not so sure you can change it. i dont really like my screen name either, its just my first initial and my last name.

I don’t think you can! I would change mine if I could.

I wish I could change mine! It’s not as “cute” as other girls are! I didn’t know it’d become my actual username, or I would have made it something way cuter! i’ll be checking back in though to see if anyone’s figured anything out!

I wanted to change mine in the beginning but unfortunately I found out you can’t without starting a new account!

This was a post somwhere else and Mr. Bee said regular posters can’t just change their user name. They have to go through a lot to change the names of members who become bees to their bee names.
I know it makes a lot of us sad who picked silly ones.

Yeah, you can’t do it. I think in the Ideas section, there is voting for it? Or perhaps you could suggest it there!

It’s actually already been suggested in the ideas section, but it’s a no go. Don’t worry though Tammy, there are lots of us out here who would’ve named ourselves differently haha.
Even if we could change them, I wouldn’t at this point, because then noone would know who I was!

You can’t change it. They can only delete your profile, then you have to start over with a new name and you will lose your “Bee status”!

I just wanted to comment that all the above posters are correct, you cant change it without starting over. However, I am in the same boat as you and used my screenname as well so dont feel too bad!

You can email someone and ask to change it… they’ve done it a few times when it’s been really important and if you think your privacy is totally compromised by having your first name in your screenname they might be willing to change it for you.
As for who you email or where you find out who to email… I’m really not sure about that one. 🙁 But I’d start with the “Contact” link to the right.

Hmm, maybe that was an older policy? I can’t remember it but it’s possible! But we don’t offer username changes now, b/c it’s just so much manual work.
