Default How to change username? (Admin thread)

Is there a way to do this without starting a new account and losing all my saved custom foods and daily food log for the past 4 years?

I believe a site Administrator would need to do that--us Mods don't, AFAIK, have access to that. I can put in a request, if you like.

Michael

Default Change username?

Is it possible to change your username? I didn't realize my username would be visible to everybody (I thought I could pick a display name for forums and the like). I don't like having my full name as my username- privacy and all that- and I'd prefer not to delete my account or lose my info. I've been all over the website and can't find how to do that.

In case anyone from the company reads this, is it possible to change my username to something like Lisssssa?

Thanks!

Lisa, this topic has come up before and I don't think there is any facility to do that. I would if I could but that's one power us Mods don't have. Sorry.

Regards,
Michael

There are in fact a very limited set of circumstances in which a name change can now be granted, such as when privacy concerns arise. This appears to be one of those times.

Please send a handle change request through the Contact FitDay link at the bottom of the page (feedback@fitday.com). It may take a couple of weeks, as it has to be done by a technician and in two databases.

And for future reference, accounts can be disabled upon request to the same email address, and it also takes some time to go info effect.

Thank you very much Paul! It might be easier to do it the way other sites do it- like FatSecret- they tell you when you create your username that other people will be able to see it.

I sent a request through the link. Thanks again!

I was actually going to inquire about this subject... I didn't realize when creating this account that I would not have an option to change my user name. I regret not thinking deeper on a different user name when i started up the account. I really don't want my name out there... I actually would like to change my user name to ~IceBlue~ if that is possible. If not.. .no worries...
