Help! Want to change my handle/name!
Okay, so I was in a great hurry and totally out of it when I first created an account for DS. Not the best name that I chose (*diaperdunce*)... can I change it without creating a whole new account?? I really hope so! Help please! :cry:

Posted by Juan:

From the Administration:

If you wish to request a username change, it will only be considered if:
Your username consists of the number of children you have and you just had a change in that number. ex. dadof3kids --> dadof4kids
You want your username to be the same as your business name ex. coolmom --> bluediaperstore
Your username is your email address, for privacy reasons (must be the complete email, not just the prefix - i.e. would be changed but examplename would not)
You have some outstanding reason why you need it changed - considered on a case by case basis.

*Keep in mind that your new username will come with a small line in your profile that says who you used to be.*

Please PM me for username requests and allow a couple of days for the change to happen. Include your reason and your email address so that I can send you a response with your username change notification.

Thank you.

You cannot create a new account as it can cause both accounts to become banned. Please contact Juan to see about getting a username change.

Re: Help! Want to change my handle/name!
could one cancel/delete an account and THEN create a new one, so as to not have two accounts on the same ip and violate the policy/ i should hav thought more carefully about this, but my handle is included in my handle on a much larger, international forum where i want some anonymity, whereas here i would like to be able to participate in co-ops, advertise my business, etc. but am not comfortable for privacy and business reasons having all these links to me across different forms of online communication and parenting forujm, i would like to address them each on an individuak level going into nit fully informed and i guess i am just now realizing this was not a good choice for me. especially if changing my username would still have something in my profile stating my old username, it doesn't seem worth doing that way.. any suggestions? obviously now if you see my most recent post i want to have this account to people can contact me if they see my stolen diapers for sale or are willing to sell for a low price, and/or trade with me, but after that, i almost just want to start from scratch if possible, is there a way to delete an account and create a fresh start w/o violating policy? i havent been to active have maybe 5 posts or less, but would like to become more active w/o feeling like my privacy is compromised and would also like to be able to promote my business down the line, which is indeed linked to personal info, as well as obviously co-op participation- thank y9ou so much for your insights and i will keep thinking on this as well!! thanks!!

No you must contact Juan to talk to him about a name change. If you make another account for any reason both accounts will be banned. He takes each name change case on a case by case situation.
