Whereas in the past name changes were performed manually by the admins, we have now installed a new feature to give users the ability to change their username themselves.

Users may only change their name once.
After a name change, please add "Formerly known as [old username]" to your signature.

How to change your username:
Go to Settings > Edit Profile > Edit Username

To check if a name is taken, you can see a searchable list of all members if you click on forum > community > member list, or go to http://mernetwork.com/index/memberlist.php

If you have any questions or comments, or to report an error with the system, please post it in this thread.
