I changed my username to VisitTheInfidelWithExplanatoryPamphlets and have managed to post with that name once but it keeps going back to this username and dropping the "Pamphlets* sad

Sorry for the radio silence - we'll have another look for the pesky pamphlets

VisitTheInfidelWithExplanatory Wed 06-Aug-14 21:23:15

I've lost my pamphlets again MNHQ... Can anything be done?

VisitTheInfidelWithExplanatory Tue 10-Jun-14 17:03:32

Soooo, any news on when/ if I get my pamphlets back?

Break dancing? That's sooooo 1984.

Ahh, it all makes sense. Must admit I've never been a huge Discworld fan <ducks>

Poledra - why would I Google when I have the power of Mumsnet at my fingertips wink

VisitTheInfidelWithExplanatoryPamphlets Wed 04-Jun-14 17:54:33

oooooh I am the chosen one....

VisitTheInfidelWithExplanatoryPamphlets Wed 04-Jun-14 17:54:08

Sorry Kate I missed your Q, but everyone else has explained nicely grin

let me Google that for you, Kate grin

Terry Pratchett describes Constable Visit thus:

"Constable Visit was an Omnian, whose country's traditional approach to evangelism was to put unbelievers to torture and the sword. Things had become a lot more civilised these days, but Omnians still had a strenuous and indefatigable approach to spreading the word, and had merely changed the nature of the weapons. Constable Visit spent his days off in company with his co-religionist Smite-The-Unbeliever-With-Cunning-Arguments, ringing doorbells and causing people to hide behind the furniture everywhere in the city."

"Entire pubs have been known to draw the curtains, turn off the lights and lie on the floor whimpering at news of his coming down the street."

Terry Pratchett, Disc World.

Constable VisitTheInfidelWithExplanatoryPamphlets is a member of the City Watch (and he's visiting the infidels, with pamphlets - they don't have them already grin)

<he doesn't anymore>

Just because I'm nosy, what's the story behind your NN? Why does the infidel have pamphlets? Tell me to bore off if you don't want to explain grin

Have nothing useful to say about the glitch other than you clearly must be the Chosen One.

VisitTheInfidelWithExplanatory Tue 03-Jun-14 18:08:45

STDG grin I was worried they would close the curtains and switch the lights off tbh!

QuietNinjaTardis Tue 03-Jun-14 17:43:59

I had this once. I registered a name which I used once and then it cut it down an I couldn't get the longer name back again.

BuzzardBird Tue 03-Jun-14 17:36:24

This is favouritism! I want BuzzardBirdIsTheOriginalBuzzard grin

At least MNHQ replied to you, Constable Visit - usually people hide behind the couch, don't they? grin

VisitTheInfidelWithExplanatory Tue 03-Jun-14 17:29:11

Ta very much... smile

Spooky confused

We've had a look and the full username is indeed ten characters longer than it should be, so there's some glitch in the system that has allowed you to register a too-long name but then keeps taking it away from you.

We've no idea how it's happened tbh but we'll have a look!

Can you remove the shorter name from my profile? Then maybe it will stop switching back?
