User Name Change

    Is there any way I can change my User name without starting over with a new account? I have Fibromyalgia and it takes me a long time to write, so I don't want to lose my articles by closing this account.  Freefogging is a name that I put in not knowing it would be the name that showed up publically. My friends on the social networks know me by valeriejayne, so that makes it hard because they don't realize half the time that the articles popping up in front of them are mine, so they ignore them half the time. I know I could get more traffic with a better name. Please help me.

      yeah, you can't change your username. But you can open a new account and then write articles and add your Freefrogging hub links to the new account. Then your friends will know valerie is freefrogging.

    Hi freefogging. In the FAQ section, you will find:

    "How do I change my username?

    Unfortunately, you can not change your username. If you need to change your username, please close your account and create a new one. If you choose to do this, please be aware that you will not be able to transfer your Hubs to the new account."

    You can read more under Account Administration at:

      You can keep the account you have under freefogging and open a new account under the name you prefer.  Just remember, that in the forums you can use only one persona (account name).

      Good luck.  smile

    You could also put Valerie Jayne in as the display name on your account and leave the subdomain/account name as is.  That would put the name everyone is used to finding you as on all your Hubs.
