Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Fri Sep 7, 2012, 04:59 PM

I have donated and posted here since 2004

and my check for $25.00 was cashed last week but I cannot get an answer to my problem.
Last year, due to my husband's illness, we relocated. I signed up again with a new user name so I started with zero posts. I would like the number of posts transferred to my new user name. Is that possible?
I have sent 2 'general information' emails and also requested it in writing when I donated last week.

Can anyone assist me. I'd sure appreciate it.

1. The admins normally do not transfer the old username to a new account.

Unless, God forbid, you've been stalked online, and need a new username. I've seen times when this has been done.

You should have kept your old username.

In election years, I think after the election, sometimes they have a name amnesty, where you can change your name and not lose your posts.

You might be able to get them to reinstate your posts then.

Good luck!

3. Thanks, Peggy

Viva as well.
I moved from my native state of Ca. to Wa state and thought it appropriate to reflect that because I had my Ca city in my name.
I will wait to see if I get a response. It is a really busy time.

Thanks again.

4. I would like to know as well...

...as I have been a member since 2004. My old username is AgadorSparticus. While that is one of my favorite characters from a movie, I am ready for a new "name".
