I think I've overshared a bit, plus some family stuff means I'm not comfy with this name any longer.
If I NC, will I lose my list of watched threads, threads I'm on, etc?

Interesting... Watching for answer

No. But be careful cause you might accidentally post and out yourself.

No, everything else stays the same.

And you don't have to stick to just one new name.I gather some people keep separate names for as many different topics as they regularly visit. Others have one main name for general chat and another for anything particularly personal. But you still retain all your watched and TIOs.

Thanks Gruach, that's just the help I was after.
No damage to others if I do out myself again, but the name needs to go.

Yikes, still here as me - forgot my password, so had to reset it - TWICE!
It somehow decided to autolog me in to my pre-Jeffrey email login!
shuffles away, mumbling...

As RealHuman and Grauch have said, if you name change you are still using the same account so none of your settings will change.

Shout if you have anymore account trouble.
