Just want to change my name that comes up when I post a question (not anonymously) is there a way to do that? I tried going to my profile and clicking edit but that lets me change photos and status but not my name
There's no way to change your username on your own.
You can message the Admins if you'd like a name change, but you can only do this once, and if you have a good reason. Make sure to include a few alternative usernames, in case the one you want isn't available.
