Default Change my screen name

I read this newsletter most mornings. Sometimes I post a "Quick Reply". Nothing more.

My husband is completely new to this site and wants to participate more than I have been.

He does not know how to change his screen name.
We do see how to change our email or password, but not screen name.

Can someone help us?

I think you need to contact the Moderator for that, or if you don't need your history, just create a new account.

I did it after being here a few months, just contact the moderator and tell them the name you want to change it too.

Send an email to "talkofthevillages@gmail.com" and request the change. They will make the change for you. I think that is the only way to do it.

I just recently did this. It'll take a few days for them to get to it, but they took care of it!

Whatever you do please for your own sake don't create another name for yourself. Email the authorities and they will change your existing account to the new name. I had them do this maneuver for me many moons ago. Good luck.

The email is in one of the previous posts is the one you want to use. Be patient. NOTHING happens overnight. Be patient they will get to your request in a bit.

Yes, contact moderator, but also be sure the NEW NAME he wants IS NOT ALREADY TAKEN ! There will be an option to see the LONG list of names, but it will quicken he process if you check first as I did. I wish I could take you through the steps, but I can't remember exactly.

Many Posters have Sage after their posting name. I do not understand the meaning.

Just curious why you do not each have a different email and different account. My wife and I both read this and we have separate identies.
