    I'd like to change my username but can't seem to figure out how. Is it locked in permanently? Thanks.

    Yeah, it's possible.

    Step 1: Delete your account
    Step 2: Make a new account with desired username

    In other words, yes, you're locked into the name you have chosen.

    With regards to the mainsite, not at the current time. There are potential plans to open a system which would allow this in the future, but no time frame has been specified as yet.

    As for the forums, while it is possible, the staff have removed this ability so they can keep a better track of user history (E.g. if a specific user is known for being disruptive, they can easily track them by that username, and not have to worry about the username being changed and the user being forgotten/hidden)

    Makes sense, thank you.
