    hi

    is it possible to change username? I set my account up a few years ago and rather naiively used my company name as a username. as i discuss more business related stuff i feel i am worried about divulging too much info so would like to change it to something more anonymous / personal. is this at all possible or do i need to sign up for a new account?

    You have your business details in your signature which is a bit of a giveaway as to who you are

    It is possible, but not something that a mod can do for you.

    Try pm-ing @Kat Haylock

    And might be a good idea to change your avatar and the link in your profile.

    When you return, can you begin your posts with something like "It is I, mtools..." so that us old timers can recognize you? ;)
