Not sure how to do this - can anyone help?

This is how I do it. Go back to the 'Topics' Talk homepage and click on the link in the intro paragraphs, copied here...."You need to be a member of mumsnet, and have a "chat nickname" to use the board. If you are already a mumsnet member you can check or choose your nickname HERE." It instructs you on how to go about changing there.

This is a link to that page. Fill in your current details, to allow you access to your 'profile'. Once you're in you can change as many times you wish

N0 you don't have to change anything apart from the new name, have a look at the top of the form when you have pressed update, it might say nickname already in use

charliecat Wed 17-Dec-03 18:26:49

nope it doesnt, i will try myself again

charliecat Wed 17-Dec-03 18:28:17

tryed again no luck it just refreshes the page without changing anything

charliecat Wed 17-Dec-03 18:29:10

once ive typed in what i would like changed after ive pressed refresh it just comes up the same page with no changes made

charliecat Wed 17-Dec-03 18:29:38

right must shoot dinner burning back later!!!!!!!!

Festivefly Wed 17-Dec-03 18:29:38

Step 1 delete your chat nickname
Step 2 type in christmascat
step 3 press update
step 4 go back to chat and use it

melsy Wed 17-Dec-03 18:29:50
