You may notice a few changes in the message boards over the next week. We are working on several big (mainly behind-the-scenes) upgrades to the rest of paddling.com and there are a few changes that will also appear here.
As of right now, you cannot change your username in the message boards. By early next week, almost all user-account management for the message boards will occur on paddling.com and not in the forums.
Hopefully the change will be pretty seamless, but if you see something, let us know!
