#1 Can I change my Avatar?

Post by Steve1967 » Tue Mar 19, 2019 4:40 pm

Does anyone know if I can change my Avatar?

Mine is V12Steve as this is what I was going to buy originally when I joined the forum..... but ended up with S1 instead - lucky me!

It just seems a bit inappropriate now?

I would be grateful for any advice as how I can do this, or just confirmation that I cant. I will stop worrying then!

Thanks

Do you mean Avatar or user name? I think user names can not be changed, you'd have to become another user, I believe. Heuer, is that correct?

Yes, lucky you to get an S1

I can change a user name via the Admin Control Panel - you can't do it yourself. Let me know what name you want and I will do it (tomorrow). You can however add or change your Avatar (photo next to your name).

David

I would like to change my Username as well. Nothing major but I would like to get rid of all those CAPITAL LETTERS. I don't know what I was thinking when I joined the Forum since I personally hate messages all in CAPITALS :banghead:
On a more practical level, it's a complete pain having to continually press the Caps button on my I phone whem I want to log in.
Alan Cochrane would be my preferred choice.

Thanks in advance.

Done! Remember you will have to use the new username 'Steve1967' to login, password should be unchanged.

Thanks for changing my username. So much easier without all those CAPITALS.

Steve

The remember me button doesn’t seem to work on the I phone 6 at least on mine it doesn’t.

Cheers
