Change my username?

Recommended Posts

I've searched the threads for the past couple of hours to find an answer... no luck.

 

When I started caching, I struggled with choosing a name. I had several ideas that didn't work due to others already having the name. Out of frustration, I figured my ham call would be a unique moniker that no one else would have.

 

Now, five years later, I have come to realize that my ham call is a bit too personal... and searchable... via the Internet. I don't have anonymity of name... and home address... even though the geocaching site isn't the one violating my privacy. Geo does its best to not reveal which cache is closest to my home, for example.

 

Is there any way to change my name (and keep my 573 finds)? Or do I have to create a new geo-identity and try to relog them all?

 

Thanks!

Not sure what you were using for search terms, but I just got back 3 results in a matter of seconds using the search terms "change username":

And I'm pretty sure I've given the same answer more than just 3 times. :lol:
