      Description

      Many users confuse username with blog handle and end up registering with a username that they'd like to change. Support modification of username by the user or the site admin.

      UPDATE: leveraging a screen name instead will likely meet the need. The standard themes will need to be updated to show "Posted by [screen name]" on blog entries and feeds vs "Posted by [Full Name]" or "Posted by [User Name]".

        At least possibility to remove an account would be really helpful.

        I can imagine that modification of the username might be difficult. However I suppose that if someone fills up the data wrong way when creating a weblog, then there should be a chance how to fix it - at least to delete the account and create a new one again (as already mentioned by Jakub).

        I have a patch that adds support for a screen name field in the user profile. I have also updated the included themes to display screen name instead of username or full name.
