Now I can't change it back sad

They changed it to a Secret Santa name, please could the default be reverted back to 00100001?

I would have done this through 'contactus', but they will say it can't be done and I'll end up here anyway - so hope you don't mind.

Last time, I promised never to change my name again - but his time it wasn't me, honest!

Um. You look like 001 to me. Is it a Christmas miracle that you have now been restored?!

iklboo Tue 01-Dec-15 16:43:06

Yep. You're coming up in binary clear & fine.

DragonsCanHop Tue 01-Dec-15 16:45:00

Yep, binary for me as well

twirlypoo Tue 01-Dec-15 16:46:14

Binary.... BINARY!!!

<slinks off after calling op 001 by mistake>

Xmas2015SantaA5417 Tue 01-Dec-15 16:48:03

no, you see my default is my <whispers> secretsanta name

I can enter 0010001 in the username box, but it's not that as 'default'

00100001 Tue 01-Dec-15 16:48:46

you can call me 001 if you like!

or 33

or !

or numbers

I'm not bothered grin

OurBlanche Tue 01-Dec-15 16:48:48

Binary for me too - ! as usual.

You have had this problem before have you not?

00100001 Tue 01-Dec-15 16:50:46


I promised never to change my name again, because I realise they're bending the rules slightly for me.

Buuuut, I didn't change it this time someone at MNHQ did.

Irish accent Have you tried turning it off and on again?

OurBlanche Tue 01-Dec-15 16:51:58

Oh, I see!

Weird. I hope they can change it back for you.

Raxacoricofallapatorius Tue 01-Dec-15 16:52:15

I advanced search and found the thread as I was having the weirdest deja vu experience.

It is strange. I assume you have emailed them/reported this thread?

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Tue 01-Dec-15 16:53:07

You are coming through as 00100001. Not Christmassy at all...

00100001 Tue 01-Dec-15 16:54:06

I would email them. But, I'll get a response back saying "no, can't be done because of Jeffery" - well no, the first response will be "this is how you change your name" - then I'll get the "it can't be done" email smile

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Tue 01-Dec-15 16:55:07

Have you seen my message above yours? You are all numbers!

Raxacoricofallapatorius Tue 01-Dec-15 16:56:02

SpongeBob, have you read the entire thread?

00100001 Tue 01-Dec-15 16:58:12

ooooh.... it;s been turned back!

00100001 Tue 01-Dec-15 16:58:25

thank you to the MNHQ fairy =)

Hi 00100001 - we've changed that back for you now, and Tech are looking into username changing issue that keeps popping up.

00100001 Tue 01-Dec-15 17:00:19

I presumed it was because you can't have a username consisting of just numbers any more - something clearly changed after I created this names (and my other all numbers name)

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Tue 01-Dec-15 17:00:25

I've read the thread. Still numbers, so issue resolved obviously.hmm

Raxacoricofallapatorius Tue 01-Dec-15 17:02:35

Binary explained that she was only appearing as all numbers because she was overwriting her default Christmas name in the Username box. MNHQ have fixed it during the life of the thread.

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Tue 01-Dec-15 17:04:44

When I read the thread, it was all changed back to the number username. No sign of Crimbo name.

00100001 Tue 01-Dec-15 17:09:59

Nothing 'changed back' - I was typing in the numbers each time in the Username box.

I did post once with my secretsanta name =)
