Hey EP
Sorry, but I think the only way you can change your name is to start a new runboard account

if any of you have noticed there are ads between who's online and the boarder of where the topics are. they are from google. if you want to have them blocked here's how, but the only catch is that you have to have firefox as your web browser.

right click on your mouse
find the words adblock iframe
click on that and have it blocked,
the catch is you have to put an * by .com (should look like .com*) and everything after you delete it.
this will prevent the ads from showing up
**make sure you have it enabled by going to adblock [sign in to see URL] make sure enable is checked

I was just messin with her, because that's what she does on the other board is give username tips and she didn't include it on this list she made. I'm perfectly happy with being named after a Metallica song.

i thought you could but the only thing you can do is recapitalize it. but it has to be the same name. there's no way to change it and if you want a different name you have to register again. i had to look that up in the main forums for the runboard.
