I signed up a few weeks ago and assumed that East Anglian would be a good name, reflecting my heritage and ethnicity. However, I've recently encountered another user with the name EastAnglian (no break). It could cause confusion, and as they have been around the forum a few years, I think that I should request a user name change.

Would that be possible?

I could become A Norfolk L-M20? Please don't tell me there's another L-M20 yDNA user on here from Norfolk!

Hi there,

In keeping with our rules regarding name changes, gladly:

2.6 Username changes on Anthrogenica are not routinely undertaken upon request. However, they will be considered if members have less than 30 posts and/or registered for less than one month. Members with exceptional circumstances (e.g. privacy concerns) must disclose these ahead of time with the forum team. Additionally, members are advised to carefully consider their username choices. Please reconsider your username if it contains your real name.

You're eligible for a username change. This will be reflected shortly. Thank you for your message.
