Request to change my displayed user name

Is it possible to change my name as it is displayed to members on the forum and my contact details?

At present I appear to be called "home" a relic of an old e-mail address. Can this be changed or is it now hard wired into the BAA's databases?

Many thanks for any assistance

Andrew - I've just sent an e-mail to see if your request can be acted upon.

Presume your preferred name as displayed to members is "Andrew Thomas".

Best regards,

Richard Miles

Andrew, make sure you are

Andrew, make sure you are logged in to the website, and then go to this page: https://britastro.org/user/2825

Click "Edit account details".

Have a look in there and see what you can change or not change.

I have looked at the account

I have looked at the account settings page and could not see a relevant setting to change. I suspect this is deep in the user database

Hi Andrew,

I see your name correctly in the forum and on your members page or am I not looking in the right place?

Home

Andrew, it is your username that is "home". To everyone else you appear as Andrew Thomas, the only time another user will see "home" is if they try to send you an email, it will say "home" and not Andrew Thomas. You also have to remember if as this will be the name you log in with. I think you are stuck with it.
