    Hi guys .... I'm new to the forum here. Seems to be a very helpful community, so I thought I'd join, as I have a few questions of my own regarding ebay/paypal.

    But before I ask those in the forums, is it possible somehow to maybe change my username to something else ? The reason I ask is because I use this on ebay/paypal, and I don't want to get blacklisted (in case they monitor these forums) :)

    I cannot send PMs yet as I'm a new member, so I thought I'd ask :)

    As far as i know its not possible to change your username. Also I wouldn't really worry to much they'd need more evidence then just the same usernames as anyone can register someone elses username on a forum :)

    Didn't get your point ..

    --

    Well I just asked this because I am on another forum that deals with a similar concept, and the mods changed my username without any issues .. So I just wondered if it was possible here too ..

    Guess I will take the dive anyway, but in case a mod can do this for me, I'd really appreciate it :) .. You have to get in touch though, as mentioning it here would beat the whole purpose :)

    Sure thing. Would you like me to send you some cash via Paypal too?

    haha ... Apologies if that seemed offending or made me look like a spoon-fed person :p

    I only phrased it that way because my 'normal' wording was blocked out by the site's spam detection filter ..

    Secondly, since I'm a new member, I'm not allowed to send out PMs yet unfortunately .. Otherwise I would've contacted myself via PM .. I'm hoping that if a mod PM's me, I can reply to that at least ..
