Can I change my user name on the community page

I just noticed I used my first and last name. For the life of me I don't know how that happened...I must have had my head in the clouds that day. Doesn't seem I can change it under "edit profile".
Do I need to dump this profile and create a new one?

    Sarah,
    I attempted to reply to the email and got a mailer daemon.
    Since I don’t know what user names are in use I will provide a few suggestions in order of preference:
    1) dogsnbeaches
    2) piperg8013
    3) hikin4me

    @dogsnbeaches  Just a quick FYI for the future: you can't reply to the emails you may get from the community forum software; you always have to click on the "Check it Out" link in the email to return to the forum, where you can post a reply.

    But then why did the email say, “ --
    Reply to this email directly or follow the link below to check it out”?

    @dogsnbeaches  I don't know why some people see that line in their email notices; I do not. Here's what I see at the bottom of all my email notifications:

    In any case, as you've discovered, you cannot reply directly to the email. You have to click the link or button to come to the forum in order to post a reply.

    Can I change my user name on the community page? If I can I'd like to use my old username if possible. I must have hit enter too quickly , I ended up using my email address which I do not want to use.
