        Is it possible to create a new topic and post it and/or reply to a post, submit it (mistakenly) under Anonymous Guest, and then log in to and change the submission name from Anonymous Guest to one’s own Username?

        Today, I thought I was logged in to, replied to a post, then discovered I wasn’t logged in, resulting in the submission attributed to Anonymous Guest.  I logged in, but didn’t know how to change Anonymous Guest to my Username.

        Thank you.
