I want to change my overclock.net username

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
When i created this account i stupidly decided to create a username using 1's and 0's because i could think of nothing better to use (I'm terrible at making up names)... and I'm starting to get a bit fed up with it 1) because it looks goofy and 2) it is a nuisance to type when logging in.

Is it possible to request having my username changed by a site administrator?

Many thanks

It is 5209 haha. That particular combination of binary has always been stuck in my head but dont really know why... I think its from a futurama episode and when i watched it, the numbers have just lodged themselves into my brain haha.
