Can't name change.
Can't start new post in Chat.

Thanks, MmeLindor.

I'm just popping back to apologise for my demented posting on Monday. blush

Especial apologies to MNHQ flowers

Hope you got it sorted, Roooney.

No need to apologise, trincomalee (but thank you anyway!)

Did you manage to namechange in the end?

And yes, congrats on quitting the cigs!

Just popping back on to say WELL DONE FOR QUITTING SMOKING, OP

Oh and Fenton...with these Rocher, you are really spoiling us grin

RoooneyMara Tue 09-Jul-13 09:38:07

Hi Tech smile

Thanks for answering...I can log in without difficulty as I have 'asked IE to remember my password for'

The thing is I can't see it

so when I go to change my name, I can't enter it there

and then it says at the bottom of the page, the thing about send an email - so I click on that, the box appears and I fill in my email address.
Then nothing happens.

There is no 'send' tab to click iyswim?

Tech (MNHQ) Mon 08-Jul-13 20:16:58

Hi RooneyMara, on the page here you log in there should be some text just under the log in button

Forgotten your password? Send a password reset email.

Do you not see that?

Rebecca, you know I didn't mean it!

Please see above for possible current excuses reasons I may not be feeling the lurve at the moment.

(Though it's true that I now hate hmm feel reproachful towards Fenton because her virtual ice creams look too damn good.)

<must not smoke, must not smoke, must not smoke, MUST not smoke ...>

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 08-Jul-13 17:40:14

Thanks Fenton grin

Fenton Mon 08-Jul-13 17:35:47

For Bekki Rebecca. smile

Eyesunderarock Mon 08-Jul-13 17:19:47

Ask Fenton for an icecream Rebecca, they look pretty good.

Trills Mon 08-Jul-13 17:12:49

Poor Rebecca sad

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 08-Jul-13 17:06:49

Hate? sad

Peace and love and flowers and chocolates to all
<hugs knees and rocks in the corner>

RoooneyMara Mon 08-Jul-13 16:57:49

I'm having trouble changing my name too, but it's because I've forgotten my password and the 'send password reset' button is missing.

They know this, I haven't had an update for a couple of days though...and I don't hate them. but I'd like to know if it's sorted yet. smile

ohwhatagrumpything Mon 08-Jul-13 16:55:36

Fenton, I've always loved you.

And I'm sorry to sound so shirty!

My dog just died
my DP just left me
I just stopped smoking

Well, one of these excuses is true.

love n kisses, y'all.

Fenton Mon 08-Jul-13 16:50:49

The new way isn't difficult, just different.

Oh, and you're welcome.

\ biscuit /

^ icecream. I know, I need lessons from Talc.

ohwhatagrumpything Mon 08-Jul-13 16:47:37

Eyes, yes I look forward to November at the very soonest. Because, Tee, my posts make it so clear how very much in earnest I am.

ohwhatagrumpything Mon 08-Jul-13 16:43:59

Fenton: Where, just WHERE, is my bloody ice-cream, you absolute cow?

AAANNDD I still maintain that the old way was easier.

Not that I am ever against change, and all that. Oh no.

Eyesunderarock Mon 08-Jul-13 16:42:49

Oh good, self-help. Always the best way.
You do sound very like my teenager, everything is someone else's fault when he can't manage equipment. grin

Tee2072 Mon 08-Jul-13 16:42:35

What is with all the anti-HQ crap lately??????

Eyesunderarock Mon 08-Jul-13 16:41:07

'yes you are indeed stuffed and need help from MNHQ.'

That's if they'll talk to you.
Or perhaps you are now query number 476,981 and will be dealt with in November.

ohwhatagrumpything Mon 08-Jul-13 16:40:03

OK, done it (as if you're interested!). It did seem a less straightforward way of doing things, but I guess that was just me being useless.

(And I changed my name to this purely in order to annoy Chaos.)

Fenton Mon 08-Jul-13 16:37:32

Okay, I've decided to be helpful now (have had an icecream)

My Account

(you may have to now login again as who you are now)

In the Username box highlight and type over or manually delete and type in a new name

Further down the page you have to put in your password again

Then further down click save.

This should be it. If not trying closing the browser and going back in.

If what you are saying is you can't click in that Username box and tap tap tap delete trincomalee and tap tap type in a new name, then yes you are indeed stuffed and need help from MNHQ.

MmeLindor Mon 08-Jul-13 15:47:46

They have changed it, but I managed to namechange earlier so it must just be you being rude

BOF Mon 08-Jul-13 15:46:17

Oops, you're right- they've changed it!

My account (you may need to re-log in)

Change name in username box

Re-input password near the bottom.

Click to save.

Then report back!

there is no 'My registration' choice in the Mumsnet box at the top of the page.
Unless I'm going bananas (which is of course quite possible).
