Skip to comments.Vanity: Is a name change possible?
Posted on 04/26/2011 3:52:07 PM PDT by WillRain
Is it possible to change ones username? if so whom do I need to contact? I was a regular poster here for over 8 years but have been away for a couple of years. I tried to register a new username but apparently the posts i posted, from an (apparent) newbie went over poorly (though they were in no way violations of the rules). Within little more than an hour i got a "posting privileges revoked" message.
I have reverted to the old I'd to post the things I wanted to say, and to post this thread. but I would like to reconcile the two accounts if possible. since all the posts on the new ID were deleted, the most obvious solution would be to change the name on this account (this would also avoid the impression that I was a "newbie")
However, I can't find any link for where I can discuss this with an admin, publicly or privately. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Hey, Invincible ... here’s a topic for you.
Your help is apparently needed very badly by someone who would like to be zotted again on an old account.
This should be interesting bump
Yes it is, Man50D changed his name to Defend Liberty but I don't know who he contacted.
Was that a County, State or Federal facility?
Don’t think I can help since I never took a sabatical and obtained my name change after petitioning those from on high during the NES peak season. I was told then that granting my name change on the fly was pretty much a rare occurance.
That had to leave a mark LMAO!
A new suit and 50 in spending money.
I was thinking Abert+ . I’m kind of nostalgic about him .
When I wanted to change my name, I just opened a new account.
I would drop an f-bomb to get the moderators attention. That way the lines of communication would open up real soon. :-)
Seriously just send admin mod a private message.
WillRain aka The "Newashman" aka ASH aka ReduxAsh aka at least five other screen names is a hoaxer who has been banned from posting to this forum. Not once, but many times. He will be banned again soon.
HE WILL, WHEN CHALLENGED, PRETEND INNOCENCE. His use of multiple aliases is, itself a hoax. He is an electronic crasher who is here AGAINST THE EXPRESS WISHES OF THE OWNER OF THIS FORUM.
Attempting to engage him in debate plays into his hands. He is here to create dissent and to disrupt the Free Republic. That is his pattern and the reason his posting privileges have been banned.
Please DO NOT respond in any way to him.
I suspect that your lack of proper capitalization has a lot to do with it.
Posters who write properly, after a number of posts, have
options (buttons below the posting field) to do a number
of things that illiterates are not able to do.
I’d suggest you try to pay more attention to what you
write and continue that effort. After a while, fantastic
options will be opened up to you.
You can change your username, but be prepared to have people call you “Newbie” for the next six years.
Why do you not like your original name?
