Right.. basically, back when I originally joined HoP, I tried to register under the name hamamelis..

Unfortunately, my computer crashed at just the wrong moment, and since that time hamamelis has been a name lost in the aether- it's not available for me to re-register as, but neither is it in the user list, and I can't log in as it.

Is there anything can be done about this? It's just been bugging me recently, I don't really like using a name I sorta gave up on after my teenage goff phase.
Thanks biggrin

You can change you name yourself (your display name that is).

Goto "My Home"
then click "edit" on the right of "Personal Information"
Then change "Display name" to 'hamamelis'

You cant change your log in.

As ucof said you can change your display name, but to get a new log in you'd have to get a new account.

Having a little brain has got nowt to do with it.
You change your nmae in the little box there, and it stays like like until you change it. Nothing confusing about that surely?

It's actually not depending the size of your brain, but you'd have to be hung like me or a horse to get this job done tongue wink wink

If you'll forgive me for saying, you've just given a fine example of your point. In the first post triskaidekia mentioned that this problem was precipitated by a crashed computer. It can be assumed that the strategy you suggested was used before this point.

What confuses me is why your computer crashing did anything to the username of hamamelis on HoP's server. I assume you tried to get a password recovery email? PM a mod, because that's downright peculiar.

Actually Mr Sparky I don't think there was any previous mention of the technique suggested by poje, he was just suggesting it as a work around for having to type the old, disliked user name. Triskaidekia mentioned that her computer crashed the first time she registered not when she was logging in.

There is no need to be mean or rude.

I can't even choose it as a display name, 'cos it's 'already being used by someone else frown '

Unless someone just chose it to be evil after I posted this, I'm pretty sure that would be the account I can't get into.. Is there no-one out there who can delete the old half-existing account..?

Hazel, go and pester a nice mod about it. Mods can fix anything if you ask them nicely. Though I'm against this change. I just spent 10 minutes trying to memorise your old weird name! I don't need another!
