What's the default thing here someone would be talking about when asking how to change their username?

The CNET forum!

How do I change my username on the CNET forum? I'm not seeing an option anywhere.

This is the CNET Windows 7 forum

So the question would be about Windows 7 in this forum.

To change your CNET name, that takes one of the CNET Gods. I have alerted this for you but it's a holiday week so it may take some time.

The CNET Forum Feedback Forum would be about CNET Forum issues.

Changing this seems to be a hit or miss thing.

Yesterday I tried it and it was busted.

Just tried it again and now it's working.

On the upper right of the page click on your user name.

Select profile.

That should bring up a screen with 4 tabs.

Select account info.

Follow the prompts and it will bring up a page where you can edit your user name.

You're all set with your new username. I'm moving this thread to the Forum feedback as it is more appropriate there. Thanks!
