Can I change my username since I don't have many posts? I really don't like this name. I was so eager to create my account that I just picked any old name. =/

I was not aware that your user name could be, anything, I would like to change it for privacy purposes considering it is my real name, and I have had people search me on Facebook messaging me for invites and what not.

I gues you will just learn to say no ... as the rest of us do. I don't like it either when strangers approach me for an invitation ... so I have a canned response ...

Because any one I invite to the Fashion Spot is automatically linked to me and I become responsible for their actions, if they don't work out as good members, I make it a policy to not invite anyone I don't personally know. I am sorry.

I understand its not your fault, if it's anybody's fault it's my fault.
And it's not like i can re-register, because well, its invite only.

For future reference -- NEVER, EVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES use your real name as a publicly displayed screen name on ANY website. Some sites require your real name on the registration form, but that is not displayed publicly. Don't use anything close to your real name (initials) or any reference to where you live (ie: floridagirl).

Usernames should be something completely generic that reflect an interest or ideal known only to you.

You also shouldn't use the same username on unrelated websites with different interests. A username you might use here or on other fashion type sites should not be used on music or car websites for example.



Note to tFS staffers: I can't remember how the registration form is set up here. There should be a reminder when choosing a screen name against using one's real name and that whatever is chosen as a screen name is displayed publicly and cannot be changed.

Hanne, just to reinforce the suggestion, you might want to stress the age group of many of the members here. I see a lot of mention of schools and classes, so I'm sure there quite a few minors.

Hello KHadeka welcome to tFS. Once you have chosen a username you cannot change it.

I've read this thread and know a lot of the mods are getting fed up with the whole name changing ring around and rightly so. But any chance of changing the policy since no ones posted since January 08? I know it's a pain in the butt. Sorry.
thanks

I don't think so... but I will ask the TL's for you.

MissMagAddict is correct, there are no plans to revise the policy regarding user name changes at this time.
