#96119 User account name change question

First Level Support

I'd like to change my login name from 'chimpster' to
'bcorey'. I'm unable to find a way to do this via the
preferences page, so please let me know whether or not
this is possible.

    In order to change your user account name, please follow
    this six step procedure:

    1. Register new user account under desired name

    2. Contact the project admin for any projects your account
    belongs to, and have them add your new account to the
    project team

    3. If your old account is the admin of any projects, add
    your new account to those projects and give your new account
    admin status

    4. Login as your new account; remove the project admin flag
    on your old account for any projects of which it was the
    project admin

    5. Delete the old account from that project using the
    Project Admin page for your project

    6. Login as the old account. Submit a brand new support request
    (this one is insufficient) to the 'alexandria' project asking to
    have the old user account removed.

    Please add a comment to this Support Request should you have
    further questions regarding this inquiry (however a new Support
    Request must be made for the old account to be removed).

    Thank you,

    SourceForge.net support

    So it sounds like I can't actually change the name.. which
    means I'd lose my account #, member since date, etc?

    Is that correct?
