I don't remember if there is a way now for members to change their own names. We might have disabled it, because it became very confusing when some members changed their name often at the same time as they changed their avatars so others didn't recognize them. It all got a bit trolly if I'm not mistaken.

I've changed your display name. Your login is the same as before.
My actions are my only true belongings.
I cannot escape the consequences of my actions.
My actions are the ground on which I stand.

Just so theres some sense of why I changed my username from BlueBuddha to Marcus Epicurus...

My "real" first name is Mark
Epicurus was a Greek Philosopher, and I like his way of thinking

Marcus sounds Greek...so Marcus Epicurus

and yes my new avatar image is actually me...with some blue coloring added via Paint Shop Pro

Thanks for the help Su Dongpo

Su Dongpo, are you new to FS or a reincarnation?  It would be good to know.
