Default New board name

Hey, everyone, I don't know where to post this for sure, so, that'* why I'm posting it here. I'm trying to think of a new board name for use in this forum, and, I don't have any ideas. I'm wanting to think of a new name that goes along with my new car I just got, so, if anyone wants to post up a poll, and, if anyone wants to submit ideas, I will look at all submissions, and, vote on the one that I like best. So, get your creative brain juices flowing.....

I don't think you can change your name in the forum. All of your posts would have to be changed, and that would create a big mess. You may have the option of starting over with a new name and just not using the old one, but you would lose all post counts and be starting all over again.

I remember this coming up a while ago, and the previous administrator explained why it could not be done. I am not the expert, just relaying what I recall from a previous inquiry.

It is possible to do a username change, but in the end, it will confuse the people that know you.

For $300, i could do it for ya.

Eh, it'* ok, I guess....I don't wanna start all over with a new post count, so, the current board name will stick. Thanks for your info.

While we are on the subject(kinda), your siggy pic is like WAY large. 480X640. 4th post down gives the specs on siggy pics.

If you need help, feel free holler at me. I could actually fix the current one, but I think it would look all funky if I changed the dimensions. If you have a pic in landscape mode, then I could work with it. But, portrait is hard sometimes.

It'* easy to change member names, but you have to be a pretty high level admin to do it.
