How can I change my username? Answered

Long story short, I set up this account 4 years ago when I was 12. It was originally attached to my Facebook, but I deleted my Facebook recently out of privacy concerns. I thought my old account would be deleted, so I could simply create a new one not tied to my old account, but it appears that it kept my old username, profile picture (which I just changed today), images, and even a draft for a Instructable group I didn't finish when I was 12.

I checked the official page for changing usernames here on the forums, but it must be inactive as I was unable to comment on it. I was also unable to find the button under instructables.com/you that allows you can change it, which I'm suspecting has to do with the CSS changes over the years. Where can I go to have my username changed to something a bit more mature, and age appropriate? The username I want to change it to is Takutanuva.

In that case, you need to drop an email to service@instructables.com.

Make sure you use the email address linked to your instructables account, and be very sure about your new user name, as you only get one chance at changing it.
