I mistakenly entered my account name as:


Can anyone advise me how to change the account name to:


... assuming that 'james' is not already taken,

Go to your Profile page, click "Edit Profile & Settings", and change the "Display Name" field. There's no requirement that display names be unique, so you should be able to change it to James or whatever else you like.
