Is there any way to change your name on the forums?
Or is the only way to create a new account? :(
I've already checked and the name was available.
Cosplayed as Nabeshin Youmacon 2012.
Last year cosplayed as Lupin III and everyone mistook me for Nabeshin. This year cosplayed as Nabeshin and everyone mistook me for Lupin. I can never win! :(

You can make a new account, but you would have to use a different email address to register with.

Medieval's response was a reference to policy, not technical capability.

So in other words you're saying that, although the forum software allows name changing, that because of this forums policy, I'd have to just make a new account.

That's correct. It was decided some time ago that the forum wouldn't allow changes to usernames.
