i want to change my name to jahid from jahid_0903014 (i no longer want to carry my university roll number with my name) in both the community website and in this forum, can that be done? please...

I have confirmed that the name jahid is unique (nobody has claimed it yet) both in the community website and in this forum.

Done for the forum. For the community website we can't edit usernames, so you can either create a new account (different email address required) or stick with it. Sorry :) We can delete your old community website account if desired.

then i guess i have to stick with it in the community website. thnks for the help.

i have another question:
is this possible to delete an account in the community and create a new with all of contributions (tutorials, ideas, hardware/software reviews,votes,comments) transferred to the new account? if that's possible then it will be one kind of editing....., but that seems even more difficult. so if it's not possible then i have no choice except to stick with my current account name. i don't want to loose my tutorials, ideas and hardware/software reviews.

Nope, sorry. The community website is pretty basic in what options it gives moderators.
