"basha" -

Welcome to the JavaRanch! Please adjust your displayed name to meet the
JavaRanch Naming Policy.
You can change it here.

There is something called SkinLF that gives you a way to make an easily "skinnable" look & feel. And it supports irregularly shaped windows!

Thanks! and welcome to the JavaRanch!

Why can't you change your displayed name? It should work fine... you just go here and type a "firstName lastName" name into the Displayed Name field... then it changes the name that is displayed. Your login name stays the same.

Your login (user) name cannot be changed. Note that your password is not encrypted and may be accessible by the message board administrators. Do not use a password that you would be afraid to reveal to anyone.
