Question Changing User / Member name

G'day

Wondering if it is possible to change your user / member name (ie Gunner41)?

Just trying to consolidate different names across various forums etc.

Thanks

G'day RB

"Fizzie" please!

If that's not available then "Fizzie41"

Thanks

OK Gunner.

I have done some investigating. The new name is available. There is an irreversible process that can achieve the same thing as changing a user name (which cannot be done directly).

I will look into it further later today when I am at a proper computer, rather than my tablet.

It is my understanding that the old user name cannot be used again once this process has been done.

After I have looked into it further, either I will do it, or get Kevin to walk me through it, as it's a first time for me, and I don't want to stuff it up ... .

Change of user name to "Fizzie"

Gidday Gunner

Next time you login, use your new user name. Everything else should remain as is.

Glad that it all worked properly, Gunner41 ... errrr, Fizzie ... .

You were in dangerous hands there - not really. I did take advice from Kevin before I did it .
