I'd like to change my username to something other than my actual name. Can this be done? If not, is my only option to delete my account? I hate to do that as I have posts saved for many years on here, and I sometimes reference them.

Yes it can be done.

I'm not sure you can do it, but it can be done in admin panel the managers can get to.  If you let me know what you want your name to be I can get to it this week. I always have to poke around a bit until I find the right spot.

I just signed up for this site and accidentally set up my username as my actual name. I am a private person and do not want my name out in public, especially in regards to private and painful health accounts. Can my name be changed as soon as possible?

Wouldn't it be funny if we all started using annie then a number for our usernames? New members would wander onto this site and be like, "Why does everyone use the name annie here?"

cute idea, Flossy....biggrin.png biggrin.png biggrin.png

 

sort of reminds me about a situation a friend of mine once told me about.  she had a friend who worked in a customer service/complaint call center.  all the women on the phones there identified themselves as "Rita" when they answered the phone.  that way, if they ended up having a disgruntled caller, the call couldn't be traced back to and blamed on a specific individual...smile.png


these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.
