We restricted the ability of users to change their log in names some time ago as it was being abused by a small minority of users. Changes to usernames can now only be made by the two site admins. If you let us what you would like as your new username we will do the honours. If it's reasonably likely that someone else already has the name, then it's worth visiting the forum search page and searching for posts by that username to check it's not taken.
Well unless Waithbraite was a sock puppet being run by the CO he must have done it himself because I don't believe that the CO would have failed to realise that "Gutaway" was very close to Cutaway who was being constantly baited by Waithbraite at the time. This was only about January remember. I brought it to CO's attention and Waithbraite disappeared immediately.
Maybe Flashy is actually Both CO's and Warrant/Trenau whatever.
