I deleted my registration a while ago in a fit of temper blush

I can't use the name "Greensleeves" now as it says it is already taken - by me - please could I have it back? I feel very wrong without it sad

Thats why I had to become mrsmaidamess instead of maidamess. But I like my new nom de plume de ma tent.

This happened to me a while ago. I have come to love my new name almost as much grin

I think MN should have a way to keep the name open for you, like Facebook does when you deregister - it's always there for you to log in again when you change your mind!

no more knob-like flouncing or I don't think they'll give it back againgrin

TrinityRhino Wed 16-Sep-09 17:05:36

I would be sooo gutted if I lost my name

welcome back greensleeves

FlappyTheBat Wed 16-Sep-09 17:06:46

I would like my old name back too, but don't want to out myself just yet, plus I am sort of used to being Flappy now.

I did the same as you did Greensleevesblush and my flounce lasted all of 2 days - I really have no willpower!

Just wouldn't want anyone else to have "my" name, if it ever came up in an auction.

Is there anyway I can get it back without having to say who I used to be?

Flappy - write to us - - and we'll see what we can do.

FlappyTheBat Fri 18-Sep-09 21:37:09

Hi Justine,

thanks for your email, have tried old name but told that I can't use it as it's still in use, that will teach me!

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 20-Sep-09 19:46:16

Oh dear - will check with BigTech to see if it really has been taken. Sorry if so!

FlappyTheBat Thu 24-Sep-09 17:05:13

I last used my old name in spring this year and is still showing the posts that I made using it.

I did change email addresses too around the same time but can't remember if it was before or after I de-reg'd?
