How do I change my username?
« on: March 29, 2021, 07:31:19 PM »
Hello, I looked around the main page but I couldnít find a ďcontact usĒ link so I decided to post here. I made my username around 6 years ago and have only made a half dozen posts.  Iíd like to change it. Is this possible? Thanks in advance and God Bless.

I'm pretty sure if you hit up one of the mods they can help you out.

 I know itís a lot of work and a job they donít like doing. Iíve seen it happen but itís rare they allow it.  :twocents:
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

If the admins have write/update access to the database... it's likely very possible to do; but I wouldn't get my hopes up LOL

And admins: if you do have access but you ain't savvy with database query stuff PM me and I can help you out.

:yeah: Iíve only seen it done once since Iíve been a mod. Itís definitely not the norm or something that happens often by any means.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Itís about 100x simpler than that. It takes about 90 seconds to do.

The reason we donít like changing usernames doesnít have anything to do with the complexity of actually doing it.
:fire.:

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
