    New FAQ proposal
    Can I change my username?
    At present, Blurty does not allow username changes. There is no way for you to keep your journal entries but change the username of your account. You will need to create a new account on Blurty in order to use a journal with a different username. If the username you would like to use is unavailable, try adding variants such as numbers and letters or underscores to the username.

    Usernames are also not recyclable. If a user has deleted their journal, it is not possible for you to create a new account using that username. For more information, please visit: http://www.blurty.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=7

I think this would be a great idea for an FAQ.

I'm not 100% I like the wording of this sentence: There is no way for you to keep your journal entries but change the username of your account. Something about the "but change the" sounds wrong to me. Perhaps There is no way for you to keep your journal entries whilst changing the username of your account - except I don't like that either. But that's just me being incredibly picky.

Possibly should link to http://www.blurty.com/support/faqbrowse.bml?faqid=2 too.

You cannot change your username and keep your journal entries at the same time.

"In order to keep the old journal entries, you would need to copy and paste them one by one into the new journal."
Remind them:
It is possible to backdate (linking the FAQ on back dating entries).
They will lose any comments they may have had on journal posts.
The loss of their status (If they are an EA).
