screen name change

i feel all weird and newbie-ish asking a question like this, which is why i didnt post in one of my normal forums. i want to know how i would go about changing my screen name without losing all the posts that i have worked so hard to earn. any help would be appreciated.

I’ll just add that even if you don’t care about keeping your post count, if you want to start posting under a new user name, you should still e-mail one of the administrators, like TubaDiva (, to let her know so she can disable the old name. This is the official policy of the Straight Dope Message Board.

Thanky thanky.
