Hi MaXimus,

Why not change it to MaGnus MaXimus to link to real history and that great Roman Emperor, see attached!
In Welsh that would be: Macsen Wledig. This emperor ruled over Britain and Spain!

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Because that would be too long a username. :)

In most forums, once the username is established, it can't be changed.
You'll probably need to start a new account using the username you actually want.
(This means you'll also start over with the post count and the restrictions that go along with that.)

Most forums dont even give you the option of being able to change what name is displayed (at least the ones I have used). Before I changed it I was glad I had that option as I had realized afterwards that I had actually added another extra letter in my name.
