USERNAME CHANGE AMNESTY: DUers can change their usernames until January 31. Instructions here:
As promised, we are having a username-change amnesty period which will last from now until January 31, 2009. That gives everyone ten days to decide whether to change your name.

Our last username-change amnesty period was four years ago, following the 2004 presidential campaign. We probably won't hold another one until 2012 or 2016, so this is your big chance.

If you don't have a good reason to change your username, we would strongly suggest that you not do so. Username-changes are confusing and a little disruptive, which is why we do them very rarely. Last time we did this, a few people changed their usernames on a whim, then regretted it later and asked to change back. DON'T MAKE THAT MISTAKE. I can't remember if we granted their requests last time, and I'm hoping I don't have to deal with it this time.

Individuals who choose to change their usernames will have an automated signature line appended to all of their posts, which tells the world your former DU identity. This will make it easier for everyone to know who all these new people with the strange usernames are. This signature will appear for one month.

To change your username, click the link below and follow instructions. It's totally automated...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

If you have any problems or questions, please post them in this thread.

Please kick and recommend this thread so more DUers can see it.

HealthyTube?

Are you braggin'? (prolly shoulda checked the profile for gender before blurting out that one!) :P

Funny - I've been rather unconcerned @ looking foolish since yesterday morning. I'm feeling ... unfettered? lighter? like people like me have a shot, now? Sumpin' like that.

Therefore - I will be openly asking for a shootdown & guess (btw, I'm one of those people that see a vanity plate & slap forehead hours later - a definite slow on the uptaker!) :think:


on edit:
checked the profile.
never mind. :9
still don't have a care ... I'm havin' a good day!


& I'll probably wake up in the middle of the night & smack forehead w/the answer!

57. What a strange person she was.
Obviously, I'm kidding. She was a Puma through and through. But the mods loved her; I remember I once posted a scene from "The Day the Earth Stood Still" in response to a post, jokingly, and she almost got me banned. For that. With nothing else. And you can check how long I've been here. Any time she complained (and she did incessantly), the mods would take her orders, and delete posts that for others would be laughable. Very strange indeed.

She went on - and I am sure still posts - to Puma sites that seeth with hatred toward our president. Probably the weirdest experience I ever had at DU, and I've been here a long time.

Goodbye Fighting Irish (since there's already a FightingIrish here at DU) and hello to...

As soon as I signed up, I really wanted this SN instead. I was hoping for another amnesty (I saw the 2004 Amnesty but I wasn't a member then). So nearly 4 years on, I finally have my chance!

63. Is there a chance I'll be able to get my DU Journal back, or do I have to start again from square 1?
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 06:39 PM by Bossy Monkey
I put untold effort into that journal for some damn reason, and would really rather not have to do it again. More to the point, it would be useful for people still weighing whether or not they want to make a name change to know that their DU Journal will evaporate if they make that change. No big deal for me personally; I can always do it again... eventually.

Edit: It was pointed out to me that the journal is still there under my old screenname, and intact, the only change being that the profile in the right margin now identifies me as Bossy Monkey. So if there's a way to relink the journal with my regular profile, I'd be very, very grateful.

Unable to find journal for Bossy Monkey, please check the spelling and try again.



Ditto for Haole Girl, except of course for the name.

105. People are now finding they can't retitle their journals
You make the change, push the Save Changes button, and the same title comes back. Strangely though, you can change other things, such as text added to the right margin, eg my Hi! introductory text.

Regardless, thanks again!

114. Huh-uh. Fortunately I had a title that wasn't tied to my old screenname
Haole Girl, who was KC2, and the person who used to be Peake are the ones I know had the problem. I tried to change mine just to check it out and found that I couldn't.

My old user name does not seem quite appropriate, though I will always be vigilant and I'm still NotGonnaTakeIt if this Administration disappoints me. But I thought a fresh beginning deserved a fresh name. And yes, I still like cheese.

76. Hold everything! It won't let me make the change...
I want to change from IMModerate to just plain immoderate. But it says that name is taken. :( I know that.

The caps, as I used them, have led to some unintended confusion about what the name is, as well as a similarity to some other user names. Can you do a non-automated change for me?

Thanks.

97. Well, I'm glad not to be "gonnabuymeagun" anymore
I can't tell you how many debates here ended with "well your nick promotes violence" or "with a name like gonnabuymeagun how could you possibly stand up for progressive principles"... okay, probably about 3 times, but still...

So I decided to return to my original nick appended with the year in honor of the Democrats return to the whitehouse. Of course, it being still early in the AD 2009, I nicked myself "jabuchan08" Oh well, no use crying over spilt milk.

The link at the top of pages for "Journals" seems to be messed up. I get an error that Firefox is OFFLINE - Page load error.

edit: Or maybe not. It happened a few times, but not every time.

124. Will you be updated or changing old post names?
If we were hoping to change names so potential stalkery types would lose track of us, the way the database works has foiled that plan. Old posts of mine show my previous name as the thread starter, but when you click on the thread, my new name pops up - so the old and new are permanently linked even after our sig lines expire.

I'd be grateful for either solution - make old threads retain the old names, or transfer them in all views to the new name.

if I had wanted to make a DU name change.

I rarely come to this GD forum and I didn't see any directions in LBN or the few other forums that I peruse regularly.
