    Yes, I really don’t like my username.  But I’m not sure I could create another that I would like for the long run (in case I’m around for babies, etc).

    I actually really like my username, but I voted yes because I think it is something we SHOULD be able to do and have control over. I wish the powers that be were more receptive to user’s concerns and opinions on this kind of matter (ie can’t change your username; can’t edit a post after an hour)

    Yeah I think I would, wish I’d used something for my married name.

    Before I found the message boards, I was reading the blogs.  In the blogsphere, a lot of people sign their comments with their name and blog…so that became my username on the message board because I was using it to comment on the blogs.

    It’s waaay too long and there’s no need for it on the message board.  I’d love to change it.

    I would.  I didn’t realize initially that the privacy controls are so lax on WB and that they won’t delete your posts when you delete your account, etc. etc further complaints we’ve all heard before. My username has my real name in it, which I would never do a second time around.

    Totally would.  I’ve considered it.  It’s only a number, really.  But eh..

    I did change it because I wasn’t thinking when I created my first username and it included maiden name.  Yeah, it stinks to lose those counts, but I can get them back 😉

    I might be alone in this but I don’t think it’s a good idea. I would keep my name because posters know me by this name. I’ve been on these boards for a while now and look for certain posters. If everyone went around changing their usernames all the time I would never be able to keep anyone straight!

    @TinyTina: I feel the same.  This is an active site with a lot of regular posters, so it’s hard enough as it is to keep track of who’s who.

    @MissHobbit: Totally agree! I just had to change my user name and it was heartbreaking to lose my post count and all of my content. 🙁

    @TinyTina: That’s another thing that sucks about changing it! I feel like I was just starting to get a presence/ people who knew who I was, but my old name was just toooooo revealing.
