Default Name Change?

I wasn't sure where to post this as it seems the helpdesk section that used to be here no longer is, but I was wondering if a name change is possible.

I used to post under the name Fat Computer Nerd on some other bball forums, and when I signed up here I was in a hurry so I abbreviated it. I could just re-register, but then I'd lose my post-count which would suck.

Can any moderator or admin please change my name to Fat Computer Nerd?

Thanks in advance if this can be done, and if it can't it's no big deal.

I'm sure they CAN do it, but probably won't just because if they change one person's name they'll have to endure an endless line of posters wanting to change their names too. (mainly bandwagon fans, cavs fans that had LeBron on their name, humiliated posters, etc)

It is possible, but they won't do it, unless we make a big push for it.

Honestly takes 10 seconds to do.

Yeah I can understand that. Plus I'm sure with a forum of this size the admin has better things to do...but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

He's at Olive Garden right now with the CEO of Skittles discussing more hideous wallpapers for the site. Then he's meeting the fine folks at Webster's dictionary to discuss removing the word "search" from their publication over a game of golf

Send an email to this adres: editor@insidehoops.com

Make sure, and this is important, that you put "My company is interesting in advertising on your site" as the subject.

I remember someone has something cav related and people asked if Jeff would change it for them.

I believe the request was ignored but I could be wrong. Don't remember the thread or poster.
