For branding purposes I need my name to be changed so that it appears as VELA.re instead of what it is now. Is there any way I can go about this without deleting my account and starting all over?

You're probably stuck with what you have because names are only changed in the most special of cases, and I'm fairly sure usernames are not case sensitive (so you can't even recreate your account). I seriously doubt theymos would take the time to help you in this case.

It is virtually impossible to change (see Change username/name on the bitcointalk forum), and it would entail paying 50BTC to become a VIP member to get the job done.

Since your account is still a Newbie with not much activity and not already tied to business (at least that I could see), consider creating a new account with the correct name and using that one instead. You don't have to delete your current account. In fact, you can't delete an account. At best, you can try to delete the posts (not all may be deletable, depending on the board you posted them in) and perhaps create a small post in off-topic that states which your new account is with a link to it, in case any person following your account wonders where you’ve gone off to.

The problem is that he is already using the username he wants, but with the wrong capitalization. And the forum accounts are not case-sensitive, so he can’t create the account VELA.re if he’s already using VeLa.RE.

You can ask moderation to change the nickname, but for this you need to create a separate thread and politely explain everything to them

I don't see the relevancy of this thread being bumped after so many months, as the user has left the forum and I don't expect him to return. It looks like the person who bumped it up is trying to spam, others look at profile of the person who asked this question he's gone months ago, this thread needs to be locked for good,

Off-topic

You are 100% right Juggy777; I'm wondering did you report to moderator requesting the thread be locked? If not it does work, so the next time you find yourself making perfectly valid points about a thread having served it's purpose just report away.

In case you didn't I have done so.
