Initial 'sanity check': This page deals only with the Username required to log in to the TUGBBS forums.

If, instead, you are a TUG Member and want to change your Username for logging into the Members-only sections of the TUG website (Resort Reviews, Resort Ratings, etc.), email your request to tug@tug2.net, giving your current TUG Member Username, your desired Username, and reason for the request. You might want to provide several names in order of preference in case your first choice is already in use.​
For your convenience, It is TUG's strong recommendation that you set both your TUG Member Username and your BBS Username to the same value so that you can use the same Username anywhere on TUG.

You selected your current TUGBBS Username when you registered as a TUGBBS user, or you may have updated it since then. You may change your TUGBBS Username by editing the 'Username' entry in your BBS User Profile.

In order to do this, you must be logged into TUGBBS via your current TUGBBS Username and current TUGBBS password. If you can't log in because you don't know your bbs password, see this post.​
TUGBBS Username change procedure:
  1. While logged into TUGBBS, click on your Avatar and Username in the blue bar near the upper right corner of the page. On narrow screens you may only see your Avatar there.
  2. Find and click on "Account details",
  3. Click the "Change" button beside your current TUGBBS Username.
  4. Enter your desired new Username. You will be told if the name is already in use by somebody else. If so, enter a new name.
  5. Enter your reason for requesting the change.
  6. Click the "Save" button.
Your request will be sent to the TUGBBS Staff. You will be notified via email when your request has been processed, so be sure your profile reflects your current email address. If you need to update your email also, see this post.
