First things first, I'd be very grateful if the powers that be would change my user name to "Stevan Marcus", as this is my formal name. Now, my motivation for asking this original question is only partly (ok, mostly) selfish. (-: I am reasonably confident that there are PN members who originally registered using an alias but, after becoming more comfortable with the site, might now like to change the alias to a real name. Alternatively, there are likely members who, for non-trivial reasons, may need to become less readily identifiable on the site. Divorce or marriage would be additional reasons for requiring a name change. Given these very valid reasons for desiring a name change, I wonder if the site management might consider restoring the ability for members to change their names via the "My Workspace" page. Perhaps members could be limited to only one or, at most, two name changes without having to re-register on the site. Just a thought (or two).
