Any tips on having my old screen name show instead of my user name?  Can't find anyplace to change it.  I showed up as Austex_Egger in the old forum.

    email [email protected] and let them know.  I posted the same question earlier and saw GG already had a thread going about the same thing.

    I sent one yesterday afternoon and I direct messaged BGERob...nothing so far.

  • Thanks all,  sent an Email to [email protected] as stated above and they had it done in about a half hour.  
  • ResQueResQue Posts: 1,045
    Must be nice!
  • AJ,  might try sending another Email.  They probably get tons and yours got miss placed or something.  Sent mine at 2:37 today,  had the response that it was done at 2:55.

    I am having the same problem, I know they are swamped but this is my 4th email since 7:00 this morning. Can't use my emotiocons on my home computer either.

    I sent an email to the 'promotions" address yesterday afternoon and as of now - no change.

    @waynebmontclair  what was your handle name and we'll get it fixed...I have not seen an email from you yet.

    Clark - Look at above post... maybe send a message directly?

    @BBQMaven - after I posted above, I sent an email to DAmico per "Serial Grillers" post. 

    I might try to direct message BGERob.

    I had to struggle to decipher your post - before I guessed that you had copied and pasted the one from BGERob to wayne.  This new Forum is difficult to follow as to who is responding to who. 

    Plus the emoticon drop-down doesn't work on my MacBook and I cannot log in with my iPad!

    Lots of bugs to work out yet! :-)

    look at the post for what browsers work... lots of good fixes in it

    Rob, please give me back my handle "Canugghead".  Thanks.
  • Why should I have to send them an e-mail when many people are having the problem?  This is an IT embarrassment.  I am pretty sure when we signed up for a user name the forum promised it won't be seen.

    probably shouldn't but life may be easier and it may get done quicker if you do.

    Just say'n.
