How To change your profile name/alias

Post icon  Posted 09 January 2009 - 09:05 AM

So, I signed up for this site because I wanted to reply to a thread and help out. I put in my email address as my login name, since most sites accept this and i like to keep things consistent. I was fully expecting the ability to change what is actually displayed in the forums to something else, like a nickname, but the option appears to be missing. If I have to, I would like to delete my account and start over.

Am I missing something or are the profile name alias feature and the delete account feature both missing. If not, would somebody please point me in the right direction. Thanks!

Caffine Lounge is not the correct forum for this.


I moved it to site feedback for the moment.



What would you like your name to be?

Send me or any Admin a PM with the name you would like to have, assuming it isn't already taken, and we will make the change for you.

Apologies for posting in the incorrect forum. The site returns an error when I try to send a PM saying that I cannot use that feature.

So... I sent an email to the Forum Admin from the originating email account that also matches the account name that I want to change. I hope that works.

I just noticed the reply within a reply feature, which confused me. So, I'll post this as a separate reply (unless it also gets grouped in with consecutive replies)...

I am unable to PM.

It says: You are not allowed to use the messenger feature on this board.

So, instead, I have sent an email to the forums administrator, as suggested by the error message.

You have to have 10+ posts to use the PM system.
