Just create a new account. User names on existing posts cannot be changed by moderators.

Someone with access to SQL database could run a simple SQL query to change username written all over the website,
Or admins, since this is phpBB platform, Administration Control Panel -> General Admin -> Configuration, scroll down to User and Forum Basic Settings and select YES to Allow User Name Changes, maybe? :P

bluecover is not a very nice username, but i can live with it, but if I could change it, that would be great! :D

Kind Regards!

All of our admins are off on extended adventures. Just us mods here without the necessary admin authorities.

What if the website gets attacked or there is a critical problem to solve? =O
