Changing Username

Hallo you lovely lot!

Just a quickie. I would like to change my username to match the Dev name I use (System Masters). Is this possible?

It makes the branding and links on my website (www.systemmasters.games) more aligned.

If that's not something the admin would be willing to do, could I change it to C64 Mat instead, as that's become my new ID across many sites now.

Thanks for your help!


Hello.

I don't think they can do that.

I think the only "solution" is to create a new account.

(Sorry.)


I think I've seen people asking for this before; I was under the impression the site admin could do it, but it might not change the username displayed on your existing forum posts.

Ah.

I've seen many people ask, but I've never noticed their names change. Also, no one ever answered them in the threads I've seen. So, I assumed it was a no-go.

But, if the username displayed in the forum doesn't change, then I was basing my theory on pure 100% BS (which I have been known to do). :)


Oh well, I can at least try :-)


Apparently I can change names, and Mataeus now has a new name. Curiously it is the same here, but if you click on his name, you will see the new name. Hopefully he can still log in?


I assume it's the same as avatars; cached at the time the post is created.


Cool! Thank you for doing that for me, I really appreciate it.

What's really great is that, my game uploads, reviews and comments all show (to me at least, post cookie-clearing (if that makes a difference somehow)) as System Masters instead of Mataeus.

Although I do see my previous posts in the forums as my old name, but that's not important - I'm just glad that everything's done!

Thank you very very much!

(To log in, I just put in my new username and current password. I noticed it had changed when I launched the desktop Quest app to work on The Foundation, and saw that my comments on The Shack had been credited as 'System Masters'.)

To me too, without having to clear the cookies.
