    Does anyone know how I change change my username? I do not want it to be my full name..... would rather have some type of “Disney name” like everyone else. I didn’t realize it would post this way when I created the account.

    I have looked everywhere and can’t find anything. Ask tried emailing the bots admins and have not gotten a response.

    Thanks in advance .

    I quite literally just created this account because alas, you cannot change your username. You also can't delete your account from what I've found... I just changed the email in my old account to another alternate address, and created a new one with my current email address. It's less than ideal, but it's better than nothing.

    It would probably make the most sense to make a junk email through Gmail and switch it to that. I wouldn't put a random email you don't have access to for security reasons.

    Why do you see a problem using your real name? It is kinda nice to know who you are conversing with.

    I thought you could contact the site administrator to change your username? Worth a shot. Here is the email: admin@wdwinfo.com

    Ugh. I always wanted to change mine because I accidentally put a quotation mark instead of an apostrophe. o_O

    No, you are not able to change user names.
    I wouldn't put in a fake one, just in case a webmaster needed to get in touch with you, or if you needed to make a paypal payment to the DISBoards to be able to use the Rent/Trade board to rent out your points.

    A user can not delete a thread. If you need a thread deleted, report the post and ask for it's deletion. If it violates any of our posting rules, a mod or webmaster will delete it. If it does not violate posting rules, it may be left intact.

    SInce the questions have been answered, and it really isn't a DVC specific topic, I'm going to close this thread.

    And that's why I'm still "Simba's Mom" even though Simba went over the Rainbow Bridge several years ago.
