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.

Your help is apparently needed very badly by someone who would like to be zotted again on an old account.

Yes it is, Man50D changed his name to Defend Liberty but I don't know who he contacted.

" but have been away for a couple of years."

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.

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.

 * * * ASH ALERT* * *

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.

I posted as Elvis Shaka Zulu Hitler in 1999, but $100 to the Freepathon and a nice FReepmail to JimRob was all it took.

If you bring the FreepAthon to completion...right now that would cost you $52,216..., I'm sure you could get your FR name changed.

Ask JimRob nicely. Donate, and wait until the next full moon to sign in using the new profile.

Ok, forget the last part, but the first two are good.

Cheers!

Shyster!

You know he/she/it must first send a money order in the sum of $10,000.00 to me, before he/she/it is eventually directed to you for the final payoff.

I hate it when you try to shortcut the system!

During the next official Viking Kitty finance meeting, your name WILL come under intensive investigation.

I doubt you will enjoy what happens next...
