[Sticky] How do I register an account?
Is there any chance I can change my username? I'm not really comfortable with posting under my real name (I never do on forums) - well, maybe should've thought about this before using my FB-account but silly me thought I could just change my details in my account and get an alias. Any help would be really appreciated 🙂
Hello ~ like others above (whom somehow appear not to have been answered, at least not publicly on this thread) ~ I rarely use FB and am very uncomfortable using my name and FB profile as my profile on this site/forums; but I was given no other option with which to create an account. I have changed my name in my account details but it is not reflected here, and I cannot find another way to create another username. Please advise. Also, four months ago you posted that this was merely a temporary inconvenience while you straightened out the sign-up process. When will you be returning to offering an email based sign-up? It is important to offer this option, as the social media route is not viable or optimal for everyone; and for some of us, privacy is utmost in this "information as currency" digital age; not everyone wants to advertise or be accessible 24/7. Please kindly contact me about this and how I can rectify it. Thanks!
PS ~ Also, I am having big password problems. Even after I quadruple checked my PW after creating an account, it still kept telling me my password was incorrect and then it blocked me from using the site/any functions altogether for 24 hours. (It appears others here have had the PW problems, and it is not a user error, but some kind of server/interface error. Like others, I believed it was my own error initially, now I understand it was not.) The only way I was able to log in today is if I press the FB icon and act as if I'm going to to create a new account and select "Continue" as my FB profile at the FB pop-up window. Every time I try to enter my User and PW on the WTTP main pop-up form it says, "This form has expired" and doesn't work (and I have to close the box and try another way) and every time I somehow (randomly, not sure how it happens) get directed to the white and blue page (looks like an old school Wordpress page) that automatically enters my email as the username, the pre-filled/saved by my computer PW does not work, even though I have reset it now several times and it's correct. This is very confusing. Please help ~ thank you kindly, very much in advance!
Also, not sure how the person who was Paola-E but is now BewareOfBob (tulpa? LOL) was/able to navigate the site or press on the profile circle and add a photo, new name, signature, etc--I'm pretty darn tech savvy and can't find this or do this, it gives me no option. Just uses my FB account, then offers a name form with asterisks (but doesn't work or show it when I add a new profile name) and change my PW, then press save. (But the changing PW function doesn't work that way/there either, I have to sleuth out the blue and white wordpress page form to ask that a new one/link be sent.) This is extremely complicated, laborious and confusing. I appreciate your help! 🙂
