Can I change my name on Fluther?

Asked by SuperMouse (30788points) July 24th, 2008

When I registered for Fluther I wanted to be incognito*, so I didn’t use my usual message board name. Now that I am on my way to becoming a full-fledged Flutherite I would like to use my regular name. Is there any way to make this happen without losing my lurve? ( I love the lurve.)

* In case you are wondering I wanted to ask a question and not have my sister (shout out to Gimmedat!) know it was me who was asking. She has since found me out.

Not by yourself. The only way I could see how, is to contact the support for Fluther and they may be able to do it. Or, you just make a new account. That’s all I can see.

You mean your name isn’t really supernutjob?

Contact Ben , Andrew or sferik to let them know you’d like to change it. That way you won’t run the risk of being banned for having dual accounts. I don’t know about your lurve count tho. you may have to start over.

It’s good to see that Traveosa has done his/her homework on the first day here, and learned how we roll. Welcome!

@AstroChuck, that is the name on my birth certificate, but I don’t like to use my real name on discussion boards – security concerns you know.

[Fluther Moderator:] Two things; if you do a really great job of convincing the admins, they will gladly change your username. Click on the contact link up top. Secondly; feel free to use a second Fluther account for asking questions incognito… it’s only an issue if you start spamming us. Have fun!

@richardhenry Are you sure? I thought having more than one account was a no-no.

@scamp: Absolutely. It would be a shame to lose your identity, but it’s up to you. Provided you play nice, we don’t mind. We actually know of a few users who use multiple identities (we track internet protocol addresses), but it’s never something that we would reveal or bring up.

Good to know, thanks! I’ll just remain plain old scamp tho.

I kinda liked supernutjob! But I can understand if you don’t love it anymore. Maybe I can have it if you change yours?
