Risks in Changing Username

I was considering changing my username. I just wanted to know ahead of time if there can be ANY adverse affects from changing my username. (i.e such as data loss, loss of management options for groups, that sort of thing)

None.  Your comment counter just resets to zero.  The comments don't get deleted however.
1. Who are you?
2. Who were you?
3. Why did you change your name to that?
4. When are you going to post a new instructable?
I might change my name for the sole purpose of people not recognizing me.

Haha, had a reputation? ;)
No, so I can laugh when people ask who the heck am I.

Cool :) As a matter of fact, who did you used to be?

By the sound of it, I'll probably try changing mine then!!!
Thanks for your feedback everybody :)

Is there anybody that actually has changed their username that can tell me if they had any problems?
I changed my name, I had NO problems.  I could edit all my instructables and forum topics, the only real change is that all your posts show up as your new name.

Great!!!!! I'm glad you didn't say there was a problem considering I've already sent in my request for a new username :)

Thanks for Responding
