How do I get my name back?
Hello everyone. I’ve been gone for months – selling the house (thank goodness) moving, setting up a new sewing room (with only 5 of my 8 machines) and just now trying to get back to the discussions. Since we also replaced our computer, and changed our email addresses, Gatherings didn’t recognize me and I had to register all over again. There doesn’t seem to be a way of changing email addresses without creating a whole new account under a whole new name. I’d rather just be “suesew” Any suggestions?
Have you tried logging in to Threads using your old email address and password?
When that happened to me, I just re-registered and added a number to the end of my original name; I'm the fifth child in my family, so it's easy to remember.
The reason I asked if you've tried logging in using your old email address and password is that I've learned some people don't use their correct email addresses when registering, for various reasons, I guess. So if its possible register with a false email address, it seems you could sign in using an old address. However, you would no longer get notified by email when you have messages, and no-one could post a message directly to your email address.
I lost my original on-line name too, when they re-organized and we all had to re-register, so I understand - it would be nice to be able to keep your name!
