Go to your profile and change your name there,

Let me know when you've done it: I'll then change the SIT entry.

Can you help me, Berlin-Bob? -- My User Name, was Patspast. I changed it in my account to "PeJaye" to use on the Chat site. -- because of too many "Pat's" on the chat site.

When I went on to the Chat site, "Patspast" is still on there. Help me please, to change it? ---- thanks ---- Pat

Hi Pat,

Just to help until Bob comes online - although you've changed the name we can see you as on RootsChat to 'PeJaye' - your username is still 'Patspast' and this is the name they can still see in the Chatroom.

If you check your profile :

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=177839

The name in the the top left is still as it was. Hope that makes sense, finger's crossed ! :)

Kind regards,

Pels.

This is your user name.  You can change your Name (or profile name, if that is clearer) but as Pels says, your user name will still appear on PMs and in the chatroom. 

Sorry, but we can't change the user name.

regards,
Bob

Hi Bob:  I entered my full name under username and would of course like to change that, but I can't see where.  I have printed out your instructions and I see the line under my username when I hover the mouse cursor over it, but I don't see a line in the bottom of my browser with my ID number.  I thought if I went to my profile I could do it there but no luck there.  I would like to change it to Familyfirst, can you help me.

P.S.  I have already posted under my real name on a Photo restoration request and the forum came back with 7 corrections.  Very, very helpful, but now what happens to the corrected pictures if I change my username?  Thank you.  Marianne

Hi Marianne,

Sorry, but 'familyfirst' is already registered (since 2012 ), so you can't use that name.

Try another name :)


regards,
Bob
