Change Pen Name

Postby KAMfiction » Fri Jan 06, 2012 12:37 pm

Hi, Somebody gave me a great idea for a pen name, KAM Fiction, but my name on the site has already been set.
Is there is a way to change my name on the site and or forum?

I can change your account name on the forum - let me know when you're ready to switch it over?

You can change it on the Archive itself - go to Account Info, Edit Bio, change the name in the top field, then scroll down and hit Submit.

Hi, thanks for the offer,
please change my forum username to KAMfiction
that is the pen name I am going for, because it is the Initials I will legally have soon K.A.M. XD

I see a box for my non-displayed name, but my username or "Penname" is not a changeable field

thanks for the help

That would be excellent indeed, it would then sync up with my FanFiction.net account

thank you very much for your help!

I would like to request a similar change. My current username on PFA is "Tosus", and I would like to request to have it changed to "Bookworm S" (same as my forum name), to line up with my explicit.pfa account, as well as the other places I post my stories. The other name is the one I've been using in non-brony circles for some time, which is why I used it in the first place.

Thanks in advance!

That... actually won't be possible, because it sounds like you registered a separate account for use in the explicit section. Both the main and explicit sections run off the same database - all the same user accounts are available in either one. You can log into the main site as Bookworm S, and the explicit site as Tosus, and vice versa.

What I can do is migrate stories posted as Tosus to the Bookworm S account, and then delete the Tosus account - would that work for you?

Ah, I see. That will work, if you could be so kind?

I thought when I tried to log in to the explicit site my other account didn't work, but maybe I we shuts using the wrong password. Anyway, I appreciate the assistance ^_^

Alrighty, if you check your Bookworm S account you should see that the two Tosus stories have been duplicated there. Make sure everything looks okay, and then let me know - then I'll remove Tosus.
