What's in a name?
 
4 Attachment(s)
This article will explain how to request a new username for you existing account. I get quite a few PM's asking if I can change a members userid. I figured this little addition might make things easier on the member and easier for me to keep track off.

Step 1:

Click on "My WattFlyer"
Attachment 54711

On the left hand side column you will see a new menu item called "Request Username"
Attachment 54712


Clicking on that will bring up a spot to input your requested username
Attachment 54713

Once you press submit, it will check the system to ensure that the username is not already in use and ask for permission to change it. Once permission is given, the system will send you a PM with Approved or Rejected and the appropriate reason.]

If you change your user name, do all your old posts still have your old name, or are they referenced so that the name is also changed?

Mike Parsons 02-06-2008 05:45 PM

Old posts would reflect the new username. So one made using the old username would now show your new one for any post made since joining.

great... and the ones you WANT to change theor name won't!:Q

Hey Mike, related question. If someone in your buddy list changes their name will it update or do you have to add them back in? How about ignore lists?

Hey...a related question..I love those! LOL :D

All rules follow the userid of the member. No matter what the user decides to call themselves, the user id never changes. For instance, I can change my username 5 times, however, my userid will always remain 15. So any rule or feature reads the user id and not the username.

When I first got my computer I signed on this forum and when it asked for user name I did not know that it was the same thing as a Handle so I put in my full name. I would like to change my user name to "scott w". Thanks

Mike Parsons 02-19-2009 01:34 AM

Scott,
The instructions are in the first post of this thread on how to do that.

"I get quite a few PM's asking if I can change a members userid."

Can we change other members ID's? :Q

BillDeLong 02-25-2014 01:11 PM

Howdy folks... just posting to get my counts up so that I can reply to a PM

FlyWheel 02-25-2014 08:33 PM

So on those old threads where someone has replied to one of your posts by name only (no "quote") anyone who doesn't know the OP's original name and is wondering who the person is replying to has to go back over all the previous posts until they find the quote because the name won't be the same.

"I pity the noob!"

I get the message that the name I submitted violated a 'rule' but no description of the 'rule' it violates....where do I find this 'rule'?

Don Sims 05-05-2017 12:53 PM

Beats me, send me a PM with what you want your new user ID to be and I'll try to take care of you.
