I’d like to change my forum username on LibriVox, but I’m not sure how to do that. I cannot find a way in settings.

You can't change it via settings, I can't change it either. What did you want to change it to? I'll point someone who can here when you've answered, You haven't recorded anything so I don't need to tell you it will not change anything that's already out on the net
And the advice you were given last year still applies :D viewtopic.php?f=23&t=70452&p=1471579#p1471579

Yeah sorry I’ve tried to record stuff but it’s hard. I’m trying to do it again. I have changed the name that I use, and this is my old name.

Please post here with what you'd like your username changed to, then we can change it. Note that we can't put spaces in usernames any more.

I’d like to change it to “AshleyMinger”. Will this change in MWs? I have 2 projects I’m currently working on that have the old username in it.

Kara (or any superadmin) - Name in the workflow is still the old name. (The sections assigned still show the old name.)

Sorry, I only know how to change the forum username. I have no idea what goes on in the workflow.

I've done it for the MWs, I think. Teamwork! :D

Hi! Can I have my username changed, and if so, how will that affect what is in the Magic Windows and in the catalogue?

There are two names:
- Forum name. Yours is ryfink.
- Catalog name. Yours is Ryan Fink.

It's much easier to not change the forum name, since it requires a "super-admin" with special powers to do it. Please only request this if you really REALLY, want/need it changed. If it's an "I'd rather have my forum name as "funkyryfink" simply because I like it better", then please don't request it.)

The catalog name is easy for any admin to change. It will not affect what name shows in the MW (that's your forum name) but it will change the name showing on catalog pages, when projects are complete.
