I go through the motions, change name and enter password to save changes and it just reverts to current name. Very annoying! Any hints?

Tasteless Tue 18-Feb-14 11:17:48

But now of course it works! Ignore me!!

It's really not working... Please don't ignore me!,

Very sporadic. Sometimes it works, but mostly it doesn't.

It's so hard to find a new nickname isn't it? I spent ages trying all sorts of different names - none of which I see on Mumsnet and I am a very regular user but they all said 'taken'. sad.

Mines been squiffy. I have to nc, save it, then open another tab to get it to show up.

It's probably a good thing. I only name change for purposes of evil.

<makes small note next to HoneyDragon's name>

Ooer, is there trouble at mill?

If name changing is being properly weird, i.e not working at all, then shout and we can take a closer look

Mine isn't working either. Just looked like a twat on 2 threads trying it out smile

HoneyDragon Wed 19-Feb-14 17:29:03

Only a small note?

What happened to my filing cabinet?

I changed mine for a one-post gag and now I can't change back!

Not working at all here. Has been doolally for a week or so....

Mine isn't working.
I tried to change to a jokey name for a particular thread but it just goes straight back to this one.

Not working for me either. Wanted to go back to my old name for a thread, but when I click save, it just reverts back to my current name.

HoneyDragon Fri 21-Feb-14 12:29:11

Yup. Still not working here unless I open about twenty tabs.

Why that works makes no sense though confused

schilke Fri 21-Feb-14 12:37:13

Er...just realised I've lied. That has appeared in my old name!! Weird.

Still not working then.

Ah! I attempted to NC last week for the first time; nothing happened after I saved so I thought I was doing something wrong!

RebeccaMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 21-Feb-14 16:11:22

What devices are you all on?
Is it a mobile issue or a computer issue and browsers too please?

DebbieOfMaddox Fri 21-Feb-14 16:15:05

Computer running Firefox 26.0 for me.

HoneyDragon Fri 21-Feb-14 16:59:01

yourlittlesecret Fri 21-Feb-14 18:05:29
