We'd preferably like you stay on your current username, but if you really really really really really must, we <b>may</b> do it for you. I just don't want a whole bunch of people nagging the admins to change their usernames.

Correct!

If you are using phpbb2:

ACP>User Admin>Management>Select User>Change Username>Submit

It does cause confusion as stated, so I wouldn't recommend it.

However, Editing post count without Deleting posts however requires a special MOD, short for MODification.

MOD is not to be confused with Moderator however. With all the MODs out there, and the phpbb Devoloping Team, an Admin can do just about anything in their forum.

It is possible IF the site admin activates the "Change Username" feature, which is rather unlikely. There would be mass confusion. I have disallowed username changes on my forum.

I didn't think it was possible, even for the administrators to do it, but it'd be best to check.
