Username change

I'm not interested in changing my username here. I'm just wondering how. I know a user who often change his/her username frequently. Is it possible?

I believe you’d have to contact our admin for that? There is nothing I can see in the settings.

Who’s the admin?

My current and or voltage measurements are only relevent to anything that I measure.

The downside of electronic communication… I can’t tell if you’re kidding or not! Given the length of time you’ve been around, I’m guessing you’re kidding. If not, it’s sometime that has commented in this thread and his user id number just happens to be #1.

How the heck can you tell someone’s user id number?
Question
don’t see that anywhere.

"Over 2000000 hours (about 200 years) standby time"  (DQG Tiny 4th)

"27,157 results for zoomable flashlight" (ebay)

Click/tap on their username to pull up their BLF profile. Note the number in your address bar.

Sorry, I’m a nerd. Computer Science major for my BS (masters was MBA). And I work on systems & data for a living. I pick up on weird crap like that.

Every profile is really just an ID number. The username is for convenience sake.

So, it’s confirmed that there’s no way to change your user ID unless the moderator wants it.
SB, can I have mine in color? Big Smile

Yeah, there aren't that many active BLF members from year one (2010).

I don't buy flashlights that often, but I do enjoy me some forum.  :-)
