Oh god I've done the drunken telling your ILs mumsnet username and I cringe that they can read my old posts. Mostly I don't want them to know quite frivolous I am as I post on S&B mostly. But there are some personal things too that I don't want to share with anyone in RL. Is there no going back? Can I change my username on old threads?

No, you can't do that yourself. It's possible that MNHQ can do this for you (although I'm not sure), so you'd better report this thread PDQ or send them an email on

But given that it's a bank holiday today, there may only be a skeleton staff on duty and it might be a day, or so, before they can do anything.

Good luck.

Thank you, I emailed you now.

I feel even sillier now in the sober light of day.

MnHQ can change your username on older posts but Google will know the older username so unfortunately, if they search they are likely to find them anyway.

Hi Olivia, I'm well thank you - a tad fraught, but nothing to do with MN!!

Hope you're well too? flowers
