Can't change name?

Post by GeorgeQGreg » Tue Nov 22, 2011 10:18 pm

Hello there... this is probably pretty stupid for me to post... but I guess I'll post it anyway...

Anyway, I would like to change my username on these forums. I have looked into the profile and there does seem to be a modifiable username section there but when I modify it the changes don't seem to go through... I am very confused.

Is is not possible to change your username on these forums? Because I would be quite sad if this were the case.

-Regards

Okay... I understand.

Would it be acceptable if I made a new account, then? Or is that bad too? (I.e. I'm stuck with this name)

Some forum software allow you to have a 'Visible Name', which means you can have a username and a separate Visible Name which you can change at any time.

Not sure if this does support that - may be an option within Admin or just not a standard feature.

I wish I could change mine to my name instead of my username, but hey :)

It's consistency... I have already had a forced name change on YouTube and have already updated my accounts on Twitter, Formspring and Skype accordingly... I want this to be corresponding... Only one I haven't really changed is Steam... because I don't want to lose my games and progress...

I have to question why you wouldn't have just regestered as james_woodcock or something... but hey!

Well when I first registered on this forum and others, I wasn't really interested in sharing my full name - but now I am a journalist and have the ScummVM Music Enhancement Project, it helps :)

Indeed we do, though I fear them nonetheless...

My username here super blows chunks.

I think I made this account when either I was drunk or when my brain was leaking.

I sure wish that it could be changed. :(

Is there some kind of problem registering for a new account here?

I've tried 10 times now and it always seems to find fault with something that I've done and then kicks me from trying again every few attempts. :(

Sorry.

Nevermind.

I guess when typing in the confirmation code thingy, I had to enter the letters as all capitals.

Either that, or I finally got super lucky. :)
