You were able to change it yourself a couple of weeks ago as someone did (there's a thread on it somewhere) but the decision was taken to stop that. Now only Admin can change it so you need to PM admin.

hugegrins  No nothing like that, I used that user name as at the time I couldn`t think of anything, it was a lady in a near by town that my husband mentioned who always wore a straw hat with daisies on, so hence daisy mae. I am nothing like that, so now would like to change,now I have another name in mind.

I did mention it  to Ed when I made a donation and had to PM him as I couldn`t find where to put user name on the PayPal. 
I can always add formerly.dm

Intriguing as to what you are like Margaret! Mind you, I think those of us who read your posts didn't have you down as a person who wore a straw hat with daisies on... I'm guessing you're a retired headmistress..
I'd be interested how others came by their user names.
Mine is quite straightforward, I'm a motorcyclist called Al and just added 'w' at the end, which is the first letter of my middle name.
Al.

Wasn’t there a puppet called Daisy May years ago? Not that I’m suggesting anything by that Margaret! I’m curious to know what you’ve got in mind now.

User names are a necessary evil of forums. I’m not on that many but have tried to use different but similar names associated with the area where I was born. I took my forum name from a Glasgow company that was close to my house, they made headache powers called Askit  snigger

I think that’s a sensible course of action. Another forum (which I visit much less frequently now) was plagued for a long time by several disruptive characters who regularly reappeared under the guise of different user names. There’s little chance of that happening here (not least because of active moderation) but I think that continuity in discussions is important and the user name is all we have to go on.

I use the same forum name on all forums I join. there may be small differences like dare_devil_dennis or Dare-devil-dennis or Dare Devil Dennis if spaces are allowed. Depends what I was thinking on the day.

It originates from the name of a video game on the BBC Micro years ago where a guy (Dennis) on a motorbike jumps over obstacles guided by the player. As a past biker, my family and I were amused by the name.
