Any possible way of changing my username?

I'd like my username to change to 'tiredofit' keeping my (minimal) history and join date. Is this possible at all here? Have changed usernames when I ran my own forum in the past, just unsure if admins have the capability here. Thanks in advance!

Generally, we only change a username in case of a stalking incident or they have revealed too much personal information with their choice and regret it, like using their real name or email address. Since it's an Admin only function, we try not to have to do it very often, and only for a compelling reason so we aren't swamped with requests. Our membership is now over 150,000, so you can imagine the potential additional workload.

Hi Tom,

I am on the same road in changing my username - I don't own a Tesla (anymore) and not into the name.
Please advise how I can do so, in order to keep my personal email associated with this Forum - thanks
in-advance.
