You can change it once from your personal profile page, under the settings tab.
Click the 'You' button in the top right, then click the 'Settings' tab and it should be at the bottom of the list of settings.

Is this method still working? I can't find it on the settings tab...

Thanks!

Remember, though, that the name-change function is a one-time-only deal, so think carefully about what your new name will be.

I really think they should change this rule. Why "change only once"? Where's the logic in that. People should be able to change it every month (or every few months at least).

anyway if any admin out there sees this please change my display name from "jonnyv" to "jonny boxmonkey". thanks!
