I have a user account with Kos, and have posted several times. After reviewing my account, I'm not happy with the username that I selected. It is basically my own name, and I would rather have something more anonymous. But I don't see any way to edit it. I can edit my photo, email address, etc., but couldn't find a way to edit my username. Is there a way to change the username, or do I just have to stick with it?

    Best way is to forget your current account ever existed and create a new one with whatever name you like. As long as you never use the old account again the new account will not be treated as a sock puppet.

    Thanks for asking.

    aoeu is correct. We are fine with users abandoning an account in good standing and creating a new one. There needn't be any notice given us here. Just be sure not to use the original one ever again, since that would qualify as "sockpuppeting" (running more than one account at a time).
