    +1 on changing usernames. Is there a way to do this by ourselves?

      Unfortunately no, we have a process to let everyone know you are moving from Old -> New.

      number6 and he should start the process for you.

      It is too great a risk for abuse. Most users choose the username they want when they register.
      We can manually change usernames if basic conditions are met.
      We like to do these changes in public so users can see we are not imposing name changes on them and to provide a paper-trail of previous username used if problems are reported (such as in PM) with the previous username.

    You are in good standing (not spamming, or causing problems)
    You have no other posts, so low risk for confusion from a name change.
    The name "cak" was free wen I checked: nobody else was using it.
    We completed this process in public, showing you requested it, and for transparency.

    Username changed from "aphire" to "cak"

    You can probably just keep using your account as is, but it is probably safest to:
    * Logout
    * Clear cookies for forum.defcon.org
    * Login with username "cak" but the same password you used with "aphire"

    If you have troubles and cannot login, you can try the online password reset:
    https://forum.defcon.org/lostpw

    If after that, you still can't login, try contacting me:
    defconforums@gmail.com

    Please let us know how it works out. :-)

    2: "You are number6"
    6: "I am not a number!..."

        You have few posts, so low risk for confusion from a name change.
