    Is there any way to change my nickname or do I have to start a new account? I'd like to use something a little more descriptive than my email name. Thanks.

    If you click on your "display name" I think you should be given an opportunity to view and/or edit your profile. That's where you can change the name that appears with your posts and reviews. If you find you can't change it, one of the admins can do it for you.

    What docj meant is you need to click on your username (ebdavis) which is displayed on the top right side of the menu bar. He didn't literally mean to click on the words "display name." However, members cannot change their username themselves so you will need to click on the "Contact" button located at the bottom of each webpage and send your request for changing your username to the Help Desk. They will make the change for you.
