Is there a way to change my Login Username?

Is there a way to change my Login Username? The show that I run was just picked up by a different website, so I am in the process of changing all of my info (Screen Name, Show Name, URL, etc.) to match up with their brand. I have figured out how to change pretty much everything; however, under the "Settings" section of my account, I don't see any way to change my "Login Username" (the little gear is grayed out). I don't want to have to start a brand new account, but I also don't want top be using my old login. I would like a new Login Username that is not associated with the site that I used to work with... Any help would be great. I really don't want to have to close up this account and start a brand new one just to change my Login Username.

    Once a username has been created they cannot be changed, usernames are private and are not displayed on the site. If you wish to change your display name you may do so in your account under the Settings link, click on the little gear next to the display name and you can change your display name that identifies you on the site and in chat rooms, be sure to save your changes.

  • So since my plans are to become a premium member as soon as prior obligations permit, I have to wait to change my login name?

    Hi Michael, you can always change your display name in your account under Settings>Profile.

    We rarely change usernames unless the user has had a conflict with another cohost.

    Best,

  • The settings Link will NOT allow you to change the USERNAME at all so who ever came up with that story LOL well try again please you can change anything at all under the settings link EXCEPT the USERNAME why is that the name on the USERNAME is of a person no longer around not very good to have a name of a person who is underground is it

    Thanks!
    This what I received as a response back last night for a question in urgency and guess what today still nothing happened, Now someone tell me please if a premium customer is told that they can make a change don't we all agree that if the statement comes from the (Assistant Director of operations) that maybe this request should be valid? well so did my sponsors. See the user name listed on my account needs to be changed reason the person who use to be a (Co-Host) of the account who by the way has "PASSED" away The name of russell31 is no longer ALIVE folks OK, and at many request from family that use to be apart of MY show which I pay for and control all formats and produce the family wants the old username removed because when ever you are doing a show at the start of your show there is a section where you can promote the show through Facebook, Twitter or Blog Talk Radio well every time you send out that link the name of (Russell31) shows up on others members Facebook.pages, There are many family and friends from his past that see the name. I don't think this is a very hard task to accomplish but you all see what John C, Sweet typed back and even stated to either email him or write a ticket and which we did many times send a email request,well here we are still not able to make the change.All we ask is for them to show respect for a person who has passed on

    sincerely someone really upset customer

    HI there, we are glad to help out here, it sounds like you are wanting to change the display name too for the show and this can be done right in the account by going to Settings>Profile section, there next to the display name you can click on the little gray gear to open the field and then change the name to something more appropriate, you can also make changes to the show title by going to Settings>MyPage section.

    You are right usernames cannot be changed in the account but the display name can be changed in Settings>Profile. The display name is the name that identifies your show. The username is private and is used for log in purposes only.

    If you want the username changed we can do that, the best way to do this is to send us a ticket by going to http://blogtalkradio.com/contactus.aspx let us know what account this is and what you would like the new username to be.

    We are so sorry to hear of this loss and can help,

    Thanks,

    John Sweet
