Your own advice is kinda wrong..

Quoted from the thread Lynne linked to:

If you have an important reason to have your name changed, please contact one of our administrators in PM.

That thread is wrong. I PM'd Marco once and got a no. So, the thread itself needs updating, because nobody gets a name change now.

Marco obviously didn't think your reason was urgent or important enough.

Just out of curiosity, why this strict policy on username change?

It does not say that at all. Please do not give people incorrect information.

Considering every member here is also a forum administrator, IMHO this is the last question to ask in this site.

As you know vbulletin does not allow usernames changes on user end and username can only be changed by admins manually. If you run a site with say 20.000 members and go easy on username changes, you'll end up with A LOT OF work as an admin. While registering to a forum, members should learn there is no username change and no account removal as a general principle. If exceptions occur, this is kind of site admin, not a right on user end.

With only 8 Posts why not just register a new user name, the one you want.

Reasons could range to:
* Username appearing in search results.
* Just wanting a name change

Using your real name as your username is not recommended, and usually this is reserved to staff.
