What If I Told You That You Could Change Your Username...

Is that something you might be interested in?

We all faced a pivotal moment when we joined the SB Nation community. WHAT DO I WANT MY USERNAME TO BE? It's an important choice. No one wants a lame name. But not every idea is a winner and I'm sure some may have regrets about their decisions.

He's talking about you CR@NK-DAT-GOPH3R-BOI_1947 (not a real username).

Well GOLDY_LUVS_BADGERS_6969 (also not a real username, praise Jobu), you're in luck. Because SB Nation has decided to be merciful and give you the chance for a fresh start. How can this magic be invoked?

1) A user goes to their profile page and selects "Edit Account & Settings" from the dropdown menu

2) User selects "Use my one change" on the page.

3) User types in the name they want to use, and the system will tell you whether or not the name is available.

Good:

Bad:

REMEMBER: Each user only gets one username change. Once this change has taken place, the bar will be very high for us to consider another name change, but any user can email support@sbnation.com to submit a request that includes the rationale behind the change.

Seriously everyone, you only get ONE CHANGE. Please choose carefully. The last thing you want to do is feel like this when your username is final.
