I can't use my old username

Recommended Posts

I think I messed up when signing in. When it said I needed to choose a username, I thought it would be a good opportunity to change it since I don't like my old one. But by doing so, it didn't associate this name with my account even though it was the same email. Now I can't change my username to the old one because it says it is in use by another member. I can't start over and register because it says this email is already in use. Now when I sign in it's under this username with no history. I'm CPSTanne. (<--no longer a cpst so I'm not a fan of this username) How can I get my account back together?

Well, if you can get back in on your original account somehow, changing the "display name" is easy.

The problem is, I have lost my account.  My account did not attach with my email account.  So, evidently, I created a new account without realizing it...

Can I change my user name w/out losing my post history?

Go up into the upper right hand corner to where your username is. Click on the down arrow to get a drop down menu. In that menu, there is an "Account Settings" option. Then, on the left hand menu on that page, there should be a "Display Name" option. A page will come up where you can change your username. It should keep your posts & reputation numbers.
