in reply to Username Changing: Redux

Why would one want to change his/her username?

To keep their current XP/Level?

One can always lose the current login, and start a new 'FREE' account. A lot of people have done so before. You can never gain enough XP.

So I think the extra work is not worth the trouble, <quote similar="Fight Club">You are not your XP!</quote>

    Quite right, but you are your posts, and for a professional coder that sort of presence is a commodity.
