Josh - I'm also looking to change my user name. The name that I'd like already exists on SP, but it does not appear to be in use. <A HREF="http://www.summitpost.org/mountains/user_link.pl/user_id/13899">Alpinist</A> was created in March 2003 but has never submitted anything, nor have I ever seen any messages posted by him/her. Is it possible to see if that person has logged in during the past year? If the user name has been abandoned, I'd love to snag it. It syncs up with both my email address and my primary climbing interest. Many thanks!
