    I would like to see the ability to change the username (and of course the appropriate 301 redirects to ensure you don't lose your rankings in search)

    Because of the way subdomains are set up, this would mean that all your backlinks would be broken - even with 301 redirects this would mean at least a small loss in backlink quality - not to mention that it would involve more work for staff and might end up meaning you lose some of your online reputation if your online psuedonym was slowly gaining in notoriety.

    I do kind of like the way Squidoo has it set up, so you can transfer pages between accounts though.

    From the help section...

    How do I change my username?
    Unfortunately, you can not change your username. If you need to change your username, please abandon your account and create a new one, with another email address. If you choose to do this, please note that you will not be able to transfer your Hubs to the new account.

    The Squidoo solution sounds good

    So what if I set up a new account with a new email address and my choice of username but then deleted all my hubs from my old account and put them up again in my new account? Would that work? Would I be able to submit my old hubs again?

      You would need to wait for your hubs to be cleared from the Google cache first, otherwise they would be classed as duplicate content.
