How can I change or delete a Username?

There is no way to delete or change Username in the system. However, you can change your display-name (what your name appears as). To change it, go to 'Your Profile' in the admin bar of the dashboard. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and there you will find the place to change your nickname called 'Nickname.'  After you enter a nickname, go to the next field ('Display name publicly as') and select your nickname from the dropdown menu. Finally, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on 'Update Profile.'
