'Cause I would really like to change mine: LJ is a name of the past.

Currently it isn't possible for users to change their own usernames through the forum software. PhpBB allows for this feature, but it isn't turned on on Sluggy.net. However, a change of username might be achieved by asking the admins very nicely.

I could change it, however I cannot guarantee that something bad won't happen, like a hole in the space-time continuum and the end of all life on earth.

Basically, I've never done it before except for spammers so I don't know if it will fubar your account or not. I don't care if spammers get fubared. Just so you are aware of the possible danger.

I've changed usernames for real (non-spammer) users on another forum with no problems. The poster's auto log-in cookie will be invalidated, so they have to log in again, but that's about it.

Yeah, I'm sure it would be fine but if I don't make the disclaimer and the space time thingy does happen, everyone will blame me for the end of all life on earth.

No, you're forgetting we would all be dead, so we wouldn't be able to blame you. But I will preemptively blame Lugath for bringing it up...

Yeah, I'd get all the blame *and perhaps more reason for me to change my name*
