it's been a while so i may be mistaken about being able to change hgcs profile names. i was thinking that it's not possible, but there's a tab to check name change history on the profile page and the forum help lists that it can be done.

rachel and i have split our gc.com account so she can cache with her family in san antonio and we can each use c:geo on our smart phones at the same time. i changed the account name on gc.com to keep our old stats and wanted to do the same here.

bottom line: can i change it or do i have register here again?

thanks people

Pretty sure you can change them here, but I have no idea how to do it.

There has been quite a history of people changing their names on this forum, so it is possible. Since I have never done it myself, I can't tell you how, but I'm sure that Team Four Paw can give you details. :angel: You can always send him a PM. :smiley6600:

Sock Puppet could also probably walk you through the process.

yeah, i thought that was what i needed to do, but it's not an option. can get to edit profile but left side menu options doesn't have it. strange thing is i even seem to remember seeing it in the last few weeks as i was trying to get back into caching.
