Hello, this is set up now.
The auction results list is here .

You will need to log in to see the results. If you won a nickname (or a group of nicknames), they'll be listed at the top of the page with a PayPal "buy now" button. Click on that to go to PayPal and pay - this means you can pay with a credit/debit card, or via PayPal if you have a PayPal account.

If you run into any problems drop us a note.

Regards,
Tech

Hi CantSleepWontSleep,
Yes, you can go ahead and pay if you like. We just won't do anything with the Aitch name...

Cheers,
Tech

look at me

SenseiAitch Wed 23-May-07 10:43:29

i'm happy to pay for it, tech. will now go and see what else i was stung for... i have a Bad Feeling.

wabbit Wed 23-May-07 10:47:48

wascally!

SenseiAitch Wed 23-May-07 10:47:49

okay, that is Weird. i know i bid (it was a joke, but i bid) for some other revolting name as i remember doing it.
will have a look later and tell you what it was if you need me to. as i recall i owed you about £25 all in, including Aitch. so why don't we just come to an arrangement and i'll pay you £25 for Aitch, as i haven't contributed much elsewhere to MFM?

Erm MNHQ! I paid for my nae, but when I tried to change to it, it said the name was already in use! What do I do now?

Tech (MNHQ) Wed 23-May-07 10:56:21

HistoricalLegoDIORama, You should be OK if you change now. It's not instantaneous - it takes us a few minutes to get the email from Paypal to say you've paid, and react to it.

Thanks,
Tech

Thanks Tech - I'm so impatient!

Tech (MNHQ) Wed 23-May-07 11:00:24

Hi SenseiH,

It's possible we missed that one. We (well Olivia really, poor thing) spent hours/days trawling through all the threads and figuring out who'd won what. We may have missed some. We'll have another look and get back to you....

SenseiAitch Wed 23-May-07 11:02:57

don't worry, i was only after the other one as a joke, i didn't really want it. it was something absolutely nauseating as i recall. just givvus Aitch, that's the important thing. or i'll have to kill CSWS. (sorry csws, but that's the way it is.)

Tech (MNHQ) Wed 23-May-07 11:05:15

OK Aitch, that's done. If you go to the payment page you should see just "aitch" on your list, at a price of 25 pounds.

Cheers,
Tech

Hello, I really wanted jas even though it wasn't on the list (can't find any uses of it though) but it says I won jazz. Can it be changed at all?
Pretty please?

SenseiAitch Wed 23-May-07 11:06:50

great, will sort that out later. thanks for that, tech and olivia.

Tech (MNHQ) Wed 23-May-07 11:10:08

Hi Jelley,

Sorry, jas has been used on the board before so we can't really sell it. It would be too confusing......

Regards,
Tech

Jelley Wed 23-May-07 11:14:01

ok, thanks anyway

Tech (MNHQ) Wed 23-May-07 11:32:01

Sorry, Jelley, I stand corrected. you can have jas - it was used only a couple times in 2004.

If you go to the payment page now it should list Jas for you.

Regards,
Tech

SaintGeorge Wed 23-May-07 11:35:08

Is that a vague definition of 'a couple of times' or is your search not working Tech?


(dons borrowed pedant hat - used 8 times from 2002 - 2004)

ChippyMinton Wed 23-May-07 11:41:34

thanks tech, have paid. Shall save my new name for a rainy day

Jelley Wed 23-May-07 11:47:56

Thankyou.

Y0rkshirelass Wed 23-May-07 11:54:20

Tech I asked for yorkshirelass and/or yorkshirepudding (yorkshirepudding was def on the available list) but neither are on that list of names that are won, did I get either of them?

saralou100 Wed 23-May-07 12:04:51

i still can't change my name and i paid aaaaaaages ago

Tech (MNHQ) Wed 23-May-07 12:07:27

Hi Y0rkshirelass,

We can let you have Yorkshirepudding at your original bid of a tenner. Unfortunately, Yorkshirelass with a o has been used many many times so we can't sell that one.....

If you go to the payment page, you should now see Yorkshirepudding as available.

Cheers,
Tech
