How do I change my username? - Page 2

technical question here--

on threads i started before i changed my name, the thread still shows my old name on the forum page (you know, before you click on the thread title).... is there any way to change that?

Just curious how long it usually takes for a name change? I sent PP on Sunday to change my user name (so it matches what I use on other forums). It's nothing urgent, I'm just wondering. Thanks!

Also trying to change my user name....

And I'm also wondering how long it takes.

I transferred the money to PayPal.
The money was collected by mothering on October 16th.
I included my current user name in the notes as well as the user name I would like, but PayPal (Firefox) wouldn't allow me to type in the name I wanted, which is ~Purity♥Lake~

Firefox wouldn't allow me to use the heart.

So, I've sent three emails to the mothering administration and have heard nothing from them.

It has now been 10 days since my request.
Not only has my user name not been changed, even though mothering has had my $2.50 since the 16th, but no one has contacted me or responded to my email questions at all.

I found this thread and thought it's my best chance of getting any kind of response.

Oh crap.

I um, that is totally my fault. Someone ELSE with Abigail in their name changed their name and well, I kind of overlooked it as I mixed them up. I am a huge dork.

My dd's name is Abigail and so you know...Abi/Abigail :

I can do that now. Many apologies. That was completely and totally my fault.

Thank you, Abimommy.

I can totally understand the confusion.

Many Abigail's.
And here I thought I was being original when I named my daughter.

Yeah I know : a perfectly sweet old fashioned name.

It was one of my great grandmother's names. How little did we know of the horde of Abigails that would be sweeping the nation.

I noticed this thread is several years old.  Are we still able to send the $2.50 to get a username change?

post #30 of 32

Yep, you sure can. :)

I was looking into this as some people take exception to the "pro" in my username. I meant it to mean I love science, but some of the people in the vaccination boards think it means I think anyone who disagrees with me is anti science. I'm OK with changing to "sciencemum" science it seems to bothers other people. 

 

 However this thread surprises me with the $2.50 charge. What is the justification for the charge to change username?

Honestly?

 

To cut down on frivolous requests (there was a time when we got dozens per day) and for a revenue stream. :)
