CHANGING USERNAME

CHANGING USERNAME

Postby Tenkara USA » Wed May 06, 2009 1:29 pm

Currently our forum defaults your username to the email address you used when registering.

We are working on the issue to allow you to register with a username from the beginning.

Meanwhile, we'll try changing your forum username to the first part of your email (i.e. before "@").

If you would like to change it to something else, please follow the instructions below:

1) Log on to the site
2) Go to the forums area
3) Click on "User Control Panel", on the top right corner of the page
4) Click on "Profile" (left side of page)
5) Then, click on "Edit Account Settings" (also on left side of the page)
6) Simply change your username

This doesn't work for me. Every time I try to change my username, it tells me that the current password is incorrect, even though it is the same one I used to logon.

bwhite, I changed your username so it wouldn't reflect your email address. I'm not sure what else may be going on.

If you want to change it to anything else, let me know.

For whatever reason my username comes up as my phone number. I have followed the directions to change it and every time it says my password is incorrect. The password I am using is the one that I use to log on. It works to log on.

Sorry about this - because I know web programming can be a real headache. But unfortunately the same thing that happened to the others also happens for me when I try to modify my username. I thought I'd try changing from "jayfisher" to "j-fisher" to see if that username works better. But I keep getting the message:
The current password you entered is incorrect.

I tried changing mine to Rick Setina vs. rsetina and got the same message.

Graham, I thought I had changed your username - will try it again right now.

Everyone else, sorry but indeed the username change is not working. I have set it up in the forum so that everyone is authorized to do it, but since we use a single login for the site we have to tweak it some more. Some big projects going on right now, will have to do this in mid January.

Meanwhile, email us if you need your username changed, or PM me.
