Longest time ever lurker checking in:

Hi Folks,
I may very well be the longest time lurker here. Can anyone tell me how to change my user name? Boguspotus is from 2001 if you can believe it!
But I am from Mpls, MN - I've been a democrat forever. The only time I voted Republican was for Arne Carlson for Gov. here - he would never be considered a Republican now.
My first presidential vote was for Walter Mondale - still a super great person.

Thanks Everyone,

PS - not a troll!!

1. Welcome to DU, boguspotus!

There is usually a time after an election where our DU admins allow us to change our usernames without loss of post counts, star status, and so on.

Keep your eyes open for something in Announcements.

And..........welcome back!

2. Thanks for the info!

Hi CaliforniaPeggy!
Thanks for that info. I'll for sure look for that. I really do need to change my username. It was great to have up to 2008 (even though I didn't post anything anyway).
But now it really is time to be more involved. I've been at DU almost every single day for years and years - there are alot of cool folks here. Time to get off my butt....


Looking to be former "boguspouts"

6. If anyone challenges you, tell them your name used to stand

for your contempt for George Bush, but in the spirit of recycling, boguspotus now stands for

Barack Obama Group Ultimate Support for President Of The United States!

Oh, go join the BOG, so it'll make more sense!!! (You probably know that the BOG is a group here on DU.)

3. Welcome back into the talking.

I'd suggest writing a sig line that says you picked the name when * was pres. And, then don't worry too much about the people who don't read much. Or, just kindly point out the sig line.

I knew someone by your name in Dearborn, MI. That's not you is it?

Good luck!

4. Good idea!

Thanks Festivito - that's a good idea. I'll do that - as soon as I figure out how to do a sig line : )

And sorry, nope, not me - I'm from Minneapolis, MN

10. Same here

 

Was a long time lurker, joined up day before the election, so I could get on, and not get that nasty message about the site being reserved for members only because of the high volume.
