    Default How do you change your name on here?

    I notice our Ruggles is no longer Ruggles, so how does one change ones username here?

    Default Re: How do you change your name on here?

    I've wondered that myself, or rather just change the spelling of my handle (would like it to be "Naitch" instead of "Natch"). I sent a request last year with no reply. Any help Mods?

    I'm pretty sure only Grant can do this. WindyCity1014, formerly known as creedlover or something like that, asked a while back and Grant changed it for him.

    The mods do not have the power to change user names, only Grant. The best way to contact him is by clicking on the "contact us" link at the bottom of every page.

    Thanks. Pretty sure I did that last time, but tried it again anyway. I can't blame him since maintaining this site is time consuming to say the least.

    Well, I emailed Grant using "Contact Us". Here's hoping for the best.

    Still no change for me. Same as a year ago.

    I understand Grant is busy, but that does seem a little long to wait.

    I agree but I'm trying to give the benefit of a doubt. Even a "No" answer would at least be an acknowledgement. I wonder if you are a "Supporter" if that makes the difference. You're paying $60 to be listed as "bnplus" yet you can't change your own username or get a reply. In my case it would be a little understandable since I don't pay to be here, BUT that still doesn't mean it's right to be ignored.

    Sorry I appreciate that a lot of labor goes into maintaining the site but if paying $60 is the only way to get noticed then I'll have to live with my handle as is. Our username is something that we should have control of anyway.

    Here is the official rule on name changes as posted in the FAQs:

    How do I change my username?

    We do not allow username changes after registration, unless you have a very good reason to want to do so. Please use the contact us link and tell us your current username, and which username you would like to have.

    You did try the "contact us" link again a few days ago?

    I'm not sure I have a great reason, but it is important to me and I do support this site.... It would be nice for that to count for something.

    I wrote Grant, still waiting to hear back. I understand he's busy, but I'd pay for the username change if money is what's necessary.

    Ruggles managed to quite recently, so I'm hoping for the best.

    Yes, over a week ago and over a year ago as well. BTW not allowing somebody to change their username after registration would probably make that person register again if they want a change bad enough. What purpose does that serve?

    It's against rules to have two active accounts also. Most people would not want to lose the post counts that they have plus the feedback they may have received just to have a name change.

    It's so nice to be rich, rich, rich, rich...
    Young, smart, handsome, and rich, rich, rich, rich...
    To dress up in the mink again
    And swim in the pink champagne,
    Oh how I loathe old age, stupidity, and hunger,
    I prefer to be full, cleverer, and younger,
    Oh you old dumb bum in the ditch, snitch, snitch...
    And get rich, rich, rich, rich...
    Get rich, rich, rich, rich...

    Perhaps it's got to do something with your 'Super Member' status.
    Who knows that earning a name in 'pink' would put you leap years ahead of where you are in the queue to change your name.

    Good luck mate.

    Default Re: How do you change your name on here?

    I have many username change requests every week. Alongside the other hundreds of emails that come in with different requests, its more than a one person job. I respond to emails / requests as quick as i can, and sometimes I do a batch and work from newest to oldest, then I switch and do oldest to newest. Eventually they all get done

    However - I've added a plug in to allow members one username change. use it wisely

    It becomes very confusing with everyone changing their names here. It makes me feel rather disoriented, but c'est la vie.
    This is why I make life easy and just use my name. Unoriginal yes, easy to remember and answer to...magnificent.
