I was just wandering if I am able to edit my username? All I want to do is capitalize my name, not change the name at all.

Afraid not....If you contact the mods and ask them, a lot of times they will permit you to make a new account with a new name and then they will ban the old account....

That's about all you can do.

I have the same problem. The thing is, in a Linux environment, the username IS the account. Everything is tied to it and capital letters makes it a different account name. Although you don't see it in raw format, every user has a sub-directory on the filesystem. You can compare it to "MyDocuments" on a Windows system, though the analogy is a bit off. If you were to create a new username, then everything associated with your old account, from posts to points to stars, would be lost. It's technically possible for a sysadmin to transfer stuff over, but this is labor intensive, so I understand why ATS has a policy not to do it. With as many users as they have they absolkutely must be as efficient as possible.
