Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2016: Any way to change my user name?

I'm sure someone here knows. Can I change the "user name" that I use to log in to my account? Don't know what I was thinking when I chose it, but it's a PITA!
thanks in advance.
Rich

Richard,

There may be a way to change it. But with only 11 postings -- I would suggest cancel/delete your current one by clicking on the "user profile" icon 2nd from the right at the top of the screen. After you delete your old one, add a new one the way you want.

Low tech solution -- but I think it would work. Before you delete the old one you could see if it will let you create a new one. I suspect but I do NOT know, that it will say that e-mail address or something similar is already being used?

Respectfully submitted,

Hap l9l5 cut off

Richard -- No, there is not a way to change your username. I have been trying to change my name from coupelet since I sold my Coupelet project. I have contacted Chris, and he has no solution. I suspect that if you delete your current account you might be able to establish a new account with a different username, but I'm not sure of that. The system won't let you establish a new account from your computer when you have an existing account.

I just entered a new name with a new password and email address (I have several) and it worked just fine. So try your new name before you delete your old name. It may not need a new email address, try it as it can only fail..... No harm done.
Here is the email the system sent on my new registration:

Thanks gentlemen. I guess I'll leave it alone for now. It works, it's just a pain. So I guess if it ain't broke-don't fix it.

Rich A.
