Can I change my Username

Postby TonyH » Sun Feb 26, 2017 11:02 am

Hello. I was wondering if it is possible to change my Username? My current one is the same as the one I use on other sites, and I would like to change it on here. Would I have to start again with a new login or can the Username be changed? I can't see how it can be done from the 'Edit Profile' section.

If it's not possible without starting again, then I'll live with it, but thought I would ask the question.

Regards
Tony

Hi Tony,

It can not be done by users themselves, but an administrator can change it for you.

Just let me know what you want it changing to, and I will happily do so.

If you could send me a private message and let me know what it should be, you should see it changed within a day or so. Do bear in mind that once it is changed your login changes too - so if you find yourself struggling to log back in, try it with your newly requested username instead!

Best regards,
Peter

Hi Tony,

I did - the change was made!

Messaged remain in your outbox until the recipient has opened them :) The recipient also receives an email notifying them that they have a message, unless they turned that off.

Many thanks,
Peter

Ah. That explains it. I was thinking it was the same as standard email. Many thanks. Tony.
