Step #1 - make sure you have a good source.

Step #2 - be on the trusted list.

Step #3 - go into edit mode and there is a link to change the LNAB

NOTE: If you are not on the trusted list, you can contact the Profile Manager to make the change and/or leave the information in a public message on the profile page.

and, by the way, that isn't just the best way - it's the ONLY way!
