How to change user name

How do you change your user name?

  1. I have been trying as well...I have always posted as Michele but mistakenly typed in the user name above, I guess I did not realize it would show up that way when I posted (we have always had to type in our name while posting)...

    Anyway, I have been searching for a way to go in and edit but that is the one field that is not able to be changed...I may just be stuck with this one...

    Any ideas, suggestions? Anyone? :-)

    Thanks in advance...

    1. Email us at amd we'll try to help. It's a bit complicated, so please be sure you really want to do it before you email us.

        Ok, Ok, I'll stick with Valrhona as a user name. I used to be pastrytroll, but decided now would be a good time to drop the troll thing..... But, literate though I am, I choke at usernames and avatars - and Limster has dibs on -ster variations! So, if it's a hassle, I can live with a French chocolate name :-)
        Thanks for the quick way to find an answer to my question!

            i just noticed that there is a karen, all lower case, and i have been using KAREN all upper case for as long as i can remember. this seems confusing to me. for a moment, i thought that someone was logging in under my account.

            1. Hello...I just realized that I accidentally have my real name as my user name. While it is not a big deal, I would rather have a screen name. How do I change this??
