If you ever want to change your user name for one reason or another - it takes place immediately and all your old posts now have your new name. This is not so good if you are changing your name for privacy reasons.
It also has your old avatar and siggy.
I thought it would be a brand new account - doh
My advise: go offline for a few days/weeks, change your name and remember to change your siggy and avatar.
I guess I will have to do it again in a few week. Learn from me and save yourself a few bucks.
Regardless, the thing about changing your sn is that when your old posts have been quoted, your name change doesnt appear in the quote. For example, I figured out this was you because of a thread I was reading and then someone quoted you as Kathymuggle, but kathymuggle had not posted anything. I've thought about doing it numerous times, and just didnt for that very reason.

It seems like you would have noticed that with your first post, and changed it immediately.
I would guess because you would lose all of your post counts and the access you have to certain groups?

I actually did have my account closed and then decided to restart (yeah, yeah - but it is what I felt I needed to do at the time). I kept my old user name.
It is kind of odd being treated like a new user - random posts seem to be held for moderation (2 have been held for over 24 hours now and neither have anything questionable in them). I think there might be a limit - like if I hit 5 posts or something per day, posts are held.
Whenever I post at the moment it is a bit of a gamble - will it go through? I don't mind though. I can spend too much time online, and this "threads being held for moderation" is helping to curb me of my MDC addiction.
There is a battle of two wolves inside us. One is good and the other is evil. The wolf that wins is the one you feed.
