When I first joined the apple support communities I used my email address as my login name.  I have now moved and my email address has changed, but my old one still works ro let me login.  But I'd like to have the current one to replace it.  Is there a place here somewhere for chnging profile?

    You cannot change the name......


    You can set up a new profile and let the old one die.

    That's not a very detailed answer. Setup a new profile on discussion boards? But isn't that your apple ID used for iCloud and your entire account history. Giving a vague answer I feel could lead to loss of iCloud account iTunes and all that. Can u break this down a little more clearly?

    How exactly do old profiles die? I've heard they never go away ...
