it says that there isn't a user with that nickname.

Is that because she has changed nickname so it's no longer active or because she has deregistered completely?

I think, LackaDAISYcal, it means she's deregistered. (Although she could, of course, have re-registered under a new name and come back since.)

D'ya want me to check with BigTech in the morning?

please smile

I do have contact details for her somewhere though <eyes mahoosive pile of paperwork in the corner of the room>, so no worries if she has deregged.

thanks helen smile

I think I have found it says that even if they have just namechanged - hang on I will try it outwith a namechanger that I know....

KingCanuteIAm Wed 22-Jul-09 23:20:19

Ooh, maybe not, using the namechange I know (ie the name someone was but is not now) it says "XXXX has chossen not to accept CAT" so I am not sure what that means - at least I am consistantly unhelpfull - sorry blush grin

LackaDAISYcal Wed 22-Jul-09 23:22:51

can I check with myself I wonder?

KingCanuteIAm Wed 22-Jul-09 23:23:31

No, I have tried it with a few namechanges I know, the ones that are not current names say "not known" the ones that are current names don't IYSWIM, none of them are deregistered AFAIK.

I think it means that my missing MNer must have deregged sad

shame as she was a great support to lots of people on the miscarriage boards.

Lackadaisy, hello to you.
I have trying to find jules from the knickercheckers. I know she changed her name to snoopdog but no sign of her since Jan this year.

Not sure if she has deregged.

Maybe we could have a lost and found threadgrin

KingCanuteIAm Wed 22-Jul-09 23:24:29

possibly not but I could if you care to name change quickly?

ie I can search for lackadaisycal if you change to something else for a moment!

LackaDAISYcal Wed 22-Jul-09 23:24:56

oops cross post! that's reassuring.

I'll try to find her, or at least a reference to her last known namechange.

LackaDAISYcal Wed 22-Jul-09 23:25:50

try searching for daisybump or daisyboo

KingCanuteIAm Wed 22-Jul-09 23:28:05

Done, it says "Sorry, we can't find a talk user called daisybump;. Click here to try again "

So that sounds good? I assume you just need to guess the namechange?

Could you post a "If you used to be XXX could you CAT me" thread?

LackaDAISYcal Wed 22-Jul-09 23:30:57

I'll try that tomorrow KC.

thanks for your help smile

KingCanuteIAm Wed 22-Jul-09 23:32:39

No problem, hope you find her smile

HelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 22-Jul-09 23:48:47

LackaDAISYcal Wed 22-Jul-09 23:51:15
