how do I change my user name

I have designed my signature and have previewed it successfully but after selecting to save changes, It doesn’t save when I go to make a post. I have logged out and logged back in thinking I had to in order to save changes but still no luck. Does the signature have to be approved? Thanks!

Terrica, send me a PM and let’s see what’s up. My username is jbalcer. smile

I have changed my e-mail address:  Please tell me how to change it or do I just do it here?

Hi! I am experiencing the same problem described above - though I’ve clicked on save signature, it does not appear on posts, etc.
Thanks for your help!
