I am trying to change my nickname to one I have used in the past. I have done this quite a few times with no bother at all. On the registration page I am being told that my password must be between 1 and 40 characters which it is, I've never changed my password.
I'm trying to do this on the Kindle Fire, for the love of God please tell me that this is not another Kindle Fire/Mumsnet thing.
yoni, its an app thing so I can't see the full website, a cut down version I think. I'm new to mums net and hadn't felt the need to name change before but I would like to before I discuss something personal
In another shameless act, I'm going to piggyback and ask why I get the same message ( no. of characters) for a nc attempt on an ipad mini. I worked through loads of obscure literary characters, but just got the same message.
In the end after about 14 different definitely allowable names I managed to get it to accept an 'oldname1' type change. I got the impression from that, that it was in fact the names were taken.
I wondered if you do actually have a 'name taken' message?
And has the name of every single peripheral Le Carre character really been taken?
Right I have powered up the laptop and have approximately 10 mins before it starts spitting at me.
No, I can't name change on this either. If I put in my new nickname and then type in my password, confirm my password as usual. I get a red message telling me "Your password must be between 1 and 40 characters in length" which it is.
I name change every few months, just to reply to certain questions on a certain topic or to share my experiences, I change back usually the same day, a few hours later. I have had no bother at all doing this before.
Sorry, on the Kindle I'm just using the Mumsnet website, but when I first got the Kindle Fire, I had to install Google Chrome in order to access Mumsnet which is where my irrational irritation started from
Oh, have tried logging out and back in again, changing password at the same time as the name and changing with a newly changed password. Oh, and I've tried re-using old names and a new (available) name too. All to no avail.
