    Hi @rupali_k17 😊 

    If you go into your profile and settings page via clicking on the Gardeners’ logo in white at the left of the top banner, you should find an opportunity to change your forum name. Don’t forget to save your changes. Then log out and go back into your account the usual way. 
    If that still doesn’t work let us know and we’ll try to help.

    Click on the Gardeners' World logo and then look at the top right of the new page for "My account".  Click on that and then on Settings and you can change your user name and profile info.  Remember to save the changes then logout and in again.

    When I’ve changed my name I have sometimes had to log out, log in, several times before the change appeared.
  • Logging out and back in solved it for me.
  • I tried to change my email address from the main site. It hasn't updated on the forum section so I'm still getting notifications to my expiring address.
  • When I tried to verify my email address change from my new e-mail address: 

    Server Error in '/account/1' Application.

    Runtime Error

    Description: An exception occurred while processing your request. Additionally, another exception occurred while executing the custom error page for the first exception. The request has been terminated.
  • I've changed my username and saved it, signed out then signed back in.  But it has stayed the same awful name that was allocated   Very disappointed.  :(

    I tested it according to what you said, but I didn't find any place to change the name, which I think is not allowed.
