I decided to change my user name to my real name (almost) and I was wondering if anyone knows how long I have to wait. The moderator(s) have to accept the change, but it's been 2 or 3 days since I submitted my change.

Does anyone know how long it takes the moderators to do this, or if I can send an email to them?

I don't know if you can email -but you can send a PM (private message).

I would suggest you wait at least a week.

Actually, I would wait 2 weeks just to be sure I have given them enough time to deal with it.

Remember, while you may think this is a high priority event, they may have other priorities on their plate.

Give them plenty of time before contacting them about this.

There is no particular rush, is there ?

I've lived with the old name for about 2 years, a few more days shouldn't make much difference!
