I;ve been thinking about changing my name to just Rikki instead of rikki11 (long story)... anyway, i've been looking all over for threads and saw some but they never really mention anything about the possibility of losing favorites (by others) or comments and everything associated with my login name.

Should I change? Or should I just sit and go with the flow?

Your name cannot be changed. You'll have to stick with it. Creating a new account with another name is against the site rules.

I assume Rikki is talking about asking the site admins to change the name, which is ok. As ShutterPug said, I doubt it would lose favourites because the user ID will most likely remain the same.

actually - you can have your username changed - it is not the same as having more than one account. I had mine changed shortly after joining here, and have seen at least one other do the same

It's not my name. Just my screen user ID. I think I'm very happy with my account and would not change it at all :)

Anyway, what's in a name anyway right?

I think folks are right, I think you can change your handle. Just pm Drew or Langdon. I know from past personal experience, they are very responsive. They got back with me very fast and gave me good response to a request I had.
