Re: Changing username

Post by Harmony Hills » 31 Jul 2017, 08:42

Hi there. I decided to put it here rather than PM. I asked Scott to change my username, but i already submitted a review before that and was published. The thing is, the published review has a title with my older name, but the "posted by" is my new name. It's confusing sometimes and i encountered it with other reviewers as well. Can this be resolved?

Can I ask for a username change, too? I wanted it to be 'hanyyeo' so all my accounts would have the same and would not be too confusing. Thank you!

If it is no bother, could I get my user name changed to Elle Howard?
Thanks!

Hi there, I joined a couple of days ago and didn't realise I wouldn't be able to change my username - I used my real name thinking it'd be temporary as I couldn't think of an anonymous one on the spot :)

Could mine be changed to Whippet?
