I just joined and would like to change my username but can’t find admin site? How to go about it?

    Using your real name is not cool Mary. I suggest delete and re-up. Maybe as
    Frosty Mary as your new user name

    This is probably something which the Help Desk would rather handle privately than publicly. I'd suggest closing this thread (or at least not commenting in it any more) and opening a new one in the Community and Moderation Issues section (where the threads are private).

    PS: Be sure not to post any comments prior to getting the name change. The Help Desk people may be willing to help you change your username if you haven't posted any comments under the original username, but once you have posted any comments they are generally not willing to let you change it.

    (But, as PaleoCortex mentioned, it is permitted to stop using an account and open a new one, so long as you only use one of those accounts. Posting comments from two separate accounts is a serious violation of the rules and would get you banned.)
