Recent new member-the boys are salty here but i like em already! My current handle is too long and references a bike i dont have.
I have a new bike and want to start a different project thread with new handle.
Can i keep all my profile info including new member registration email and just change handle or do i need to register again as new member?

Thanks!

Wait, did you create a 2nd account? I can merge the 2 together if you did, leaving whichever email and username in place that you prefer.

The accounts to be merged are surfrider70 and 69hondacb450k2.

While you're doing that can you change DohcBikes to either squeegee or sprinkles (choice is yours) until he stops being a dick?

There should be a sticky somewhere to advise newcomers that once you have a "handle" people will crank you with it whenever they can.

Accounts merged under surfrider70.

Not going to antagonize the other guy by changing his name without his consent, though.

HAHA!
Man you guys dont skip a beat!
Thanks admin i re-registered and all is well, thanks.

He chose a username that matched his bike. He sold/crashed/lost/retired said bike. He now wants a new user name not based on said bike. He didn't get a response earlier so he created a new account, with a different name.

Or so I'm guessing.
Nailed it......

For the record, it wasn't immediately obvious that surfrider had re-registered as surfrider. Once that was clarified, it was easy to combine the two accounts.

And, technically, a "handle" IS a username. But the use of "handle" wasn't the root of my confusion. And "avatar" is the universal term for an image associated with one's screen name, or "username". In that context, it has no relationship to any films, persons, or entities outside of the forum in which said avatar is used.

I'm sorry, you'll have to repeat that in terms your star members can comprehend.
Change it!! change it!! change it!! change it!! Start a poll... we'll vote between squeegee and sprinkles!!!

I think "name" is the best thing to use in terms of naming things.... Handle is reserved forever within the bounds of CB radio good buddy.

avatars can be changed twice a day but some stick with the ones they chose first time at the checkout.
