I want a new nickname for when I post on my local site. But I can't change it. There is a facility on My Mumsnet to change my general username but my local name remains the same and I can't see how to change it.
Anyone able to help? TIA

From another thread in Site Stuff, I understand it isn't possible to change your MN local username.

Oh okay. Thank you. Wonder why.

It is possible to have another NN for your local site, but MNHQ has to do it for you. Send them an email on

Hi Joliett - as Fru says, if you pop an email to, we can change it for you.

Did you manage to get your local NN changed via MNHQ, Joliett?
