What's in a name?
What's in a name?

Default What's in a name?

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"
Click image for larger version

Name:	shot1.gif
Views:	371
Size:	20.2 KB
ID:	54711

On the left hand side column you will see a new menu item called "Request Username"
Click image for larger version

Name:	shot2.gif
Views:	384
Size:	5.9 KB
ID:	54712


Clicking on that will bring up a spot to input your requested username
Click image for larger version

Name:	shot3.gif
Views:	383
Size:	8.6 KB
ID:	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?

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!

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

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

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

Can we change other members ID's?

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.

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.
