    Username change


    I changed my username to fuzzlepop and now sombody else have registered my username. Why does seochat allow my old username to be registered by others?

    • 75c agrees : mmm, I recognize the syntax...

    Is there anything you won't agree with borntoptimize?

    I would think a Mod would step in if they were trying to pass themselves off as you but if its a common name (Like SEOMan etc) there would be nothing to link you to that name.

    Its easy to stop a name from being registered but I would think once someone doesn't want it anymore, it would be up for grabs.

    So does that mean you are now registered under both the nicknames fuzzlepop and webdesign-talk? Did you just save your old nickname from potentially being abused ?

    Just submit a support ticket and explain why, how and whence you want the change Include as many details as you can. Hmmm, forget that last bit.... be sure to include all the details the admins will need to complete the transfer in one go.

    PS: are you sure??? Nickname changes are sooo confusing. It's like you'd have to make a name for yourself all over again.

    PPS: This new dzine person is on my watchlist alright, so don't worry b2o

    I think she'll be fine. She is identified more by style than name. ;)

    I have been toying with a username change for ages but i just cant think up a good name.
    I had to leave Earl Grey to rest becuse when i was posting under that name i was truly an evil person.

    It is a bit strange when someone changes usernames or avaters but you soon get used to it.
