    Thanks, Mod. Its still a few years off on the horizon, but I’ll file the brocha away for future reference!

    #955141

    the Brocha has no expiration date, so they should keep it active in Shamayim till needed

    Looks like ketzies got some commonsense. 🙂

    thanx kasha as you can see your advice worked.

    Your welcome. Two points to keep in mind are a. you still need to login as ketzies, although your posts will show up as commonsense and b. all your old posts in the CR now show your posts under your new screen name – yet other posters may have referred to you as ketzies in their responses to you – making it slightly tricky for someone reading the conversation now to understand who they are talking to.

    i am not such a prolific poster that it should really be an issue to anyone. When i became a member years ago i did not realize that my username would be posted by each post. there are some people who know who i am so i kept my opinions to myself most of the time. i wanted to be able to express opinions anonymously.

    It worked. My old “da” is now “d a”!

    Now, how do you change the title under your screen name…

    80 (I think!), your funny! Instead of answering me, you change it yourself! Can I get a clear answer? Please? With a cherry on top?!

    There is no self-service on that one.

    Why is it not working?? I changed my nickname, then made it display as my nickname, then clicked ‘update profile’, and the ‘display as’ went back to moishy!!?? Why did this happen??

    i also want to change my user name. how do i do it? also, i want member under my user name – i think it’s time to try to earn a new subtitle. mods? anybody?

    also, anybody have some good suggestions for a new name?

    possibilities include:

    hanib (backwards for binah)

    banana (sounds little similar to binah)

    serenity (cuz it’s a nice thing to be) or tranquility (for same reason)

    all suggestions will be considered. thanks!

    #955155

    Should work. I just changed myself to choc2 and it updated.

    Try it again, perhaps it didn’t go through the first time.

    chocandpatience- how did it work, if your SN still comes up as ‘chocandpatience’?? I thought you changed it to choc2??

    #955157

    moishy: i changed it back again. I meant that I tried it out and it worked. if you can’t get it to work, perhaps just create a new username. (it won’t let you put in the same email address twice, so first change the email address of your current name)

    binahyeseira: why do you want to change? It’s a nice name and fits you.

    chocandpatience – how do I change the email address of my current SN??

    #955159

    go to your profile – click on your name at top left, where it say ‘welcome moishy’. then on ‘edit’ at the right.

    chocandpatience, I asked the same question as moishy, but you ignored me…

    Mods, I have the answer, but you can still reply to my email, please use my new address.

    moishy – I am having the same problem as you are, it’s not letting me update the screen name.

    chocandpatience – You didn’t get a blank page when you trie changing your name? And is the way you made the link on your name, by doing the same method as the “click here” in the nickname box?

    chocandpatience: thanks for the compliment.

    several reasons i was thinking of changing it, but most compelling one is that if someone knows me, it’s very obvious who i am. i know that no one who posts here regularly in real life knows who i am, but no question, if a lurker knew me well – they would easily identify me. one such lurker already did. no question. the person said, “you are binahyeseira”. the only part that the person didn’t understand was my screenname – didn’t get that part of all, which is of course why i like it so much. but if i want to write more, i don’t want to feel self-conscious – i’d like to write completely anonymously.

    oh, not my screen name – my subtitle: my screenname, they felt was me – the subtitle, not. 🙂

    #955164

    moi aussi: I never ignore anyone. I probably didn’t notice your post. By the way, I think the mods mentioned that their email accounts are no longer in use. So you probably won’t get a reply.

    rb: no. i updated and it refreshed the profile details. it took quite a few seconds, though.

    binah: if you want to change your name for security, then don’t discuss the name you’re choosing. Otherwise anyone looking at archives will know who you are.

    Also, create a new username, don’t just change your current name. (And it probably is wise not to use an email address which gives away your real name.)

    rb: the link goes in ‘website’

    choc – What browser do you use, in my browser it doesn’t work. Where is the place you are putting the link, what do you mean by “website”?

    #955167

    rb:

    firefox. what screen are you at and what do you see?

    #955168

    if you are where I am then it’s at the bottom left.

    choc – Opera, Google Chrome, and Explorer and none of them work. I went to the update information page, changed nickname, clicked update information and I got a blank page.

    #955170

    dunno. explorer works for me. ask joseph 😉

    we must be on a different page. did you read this thread?

    choc – How do you make a link on your name? Where do you put the link?

    chocandpatience- It didn’t work. I switched my email, but I still couldn’t make a new SN with my previous email.

    #955180

    rb: “choc – How do you make a link on your name? Where do you put the link?”

    <http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/changing-username#post-327877&gt;

    did you use the same link mentioned at the start of the thread?

    (how did you originally change your username to rb?)

    #955181

    moishy – if you go back to your profile, which email address is showing – the previous one or the new one?

    #955182

    choc – I’m not sure what you were reffering to with that link. When I originaly made my name it used to work. Now it doesn’t.

    Try this link (while logged in), and click “profile” on the top left.

    #955185

    “choc- for some wierd reason, it shows the previous email!!?? “

    try again.

    don’t forget to click ‘update profile’ after you make the change

    once you’ve changed that, you will be able to create another username.

    #955186

    real-brisker: I was just pointing to where I previously answered.

    Don’t know what your problem might be – try logging in from another PC. Or perhaps someone else here can help.
