View Full Version : how do I delete my profile or change my name ?
came here looking for some info on rucsacs and stoves - so I picked a profile name kind of at random as searching without was awkward
now I find this place is really useful and want to join in prperly but would prefer a profile name that is more 'me'
can I delete my profile and start again ? Or change my name ?
I've referred this to Admin.
It should be possible.
Hey, I'm trying to do this too. I joined and put my name on but would like to change it to a less obvious user name / nickname as I am often on here using my work laptop and prefer more anonimity in case it gets left on at work.
I know some use their own name or a variation of that but if possible I prefer to be more discrete. Not just paranoia but have had fun watching a colleague have a bit of fun with another coleague's Facebook page at work and would rather it be less obvious its me. Make sense?
Anyway can you change your user name easily?
It can only be done by Admin (if you've got a valid reason). Your history on the Forum is also taken into account. If you've got a high number of posts (personally I find 1000+ posts is), it's kinda tricky to change a username, as people all get very confused ... On the other hand privacy could be a valid reason (though it's not a magic word to get things done).
