    I want to change the username attached to my profile for logging into the wordpress forums. I know how to edit my profile info, but not the username. It says for questions to contact the forum administrator (or something to that effect) - but there's no contact info. Please help. Thank you.

    Yeah, you can't actually do it from the wordpress admin area, for whatever reason, but it is possible. You need access to phpMyAdmin.

    This thread has a bit more info:

    Thanks, but that's not exactly what I meant. I was talking about my username on this site, to log in to the forums. I registered to be able to ask/answer questions to the forum. I guess I can just create another user account. FYI, I downloaded WordPress and installed it on our server. So there's no problem in changing any profiles or profile names for the actual WordPress blog application itself. I'll just create a new useraccount on wordpress.org I guess. Thanks.
