Question How do I change my own username?

I have had a vBulletin forum for 6 years. It is 3.7.2 I have since received my master's degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner. I would like to change my own user name but the program tells me I am not allowed to do so. How can I get around this?

Thank you,

Remove your member ID from the config, then you can edit your name on your site just remember to keep a copy of the file before you change it once you have changed it then replace the default config

More specifically, remove your userid from this config setting in the /includes/config.php file:

Try a search before posting for help. Many users won't, and don't, help if the question has been answered several times before.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
I will NOT help via PM (you will be directed to post in the forums for help.)

And once you done editing your name put your ID back in "UNDELETABLE / UNALTERABLE USERS" to protect it again.
