When I post i feel like i am hiding something - cos i guess by now lots of regulars know stuff about me - i don't want to start every post saying who i really am

i've looked at past threads and can't really find anything to help you, someone must have some advice.

I have no idea over name changes having never done one but can't you just log out as your new name and then type your new one into the nickname box at the bottom for posting then use your password associated with that name.

Just like you would have to do if you logged onto mumsnet on a friend's computer or one in the library.

"can't you just log out as your new name and then type your OLD one into the nickname box"
