Username / Avatar Changes

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the inconvenience, we are trying to streamline Greytalk and in doing so we are making changes to usernames and avatar names. These items need to match. Spaces and special characters cause other areas of the website to behave erratically, and spaces in filenames (avatars) do not render well on all platforms and browsers. While we have been limiting “new” registrations to meet standards we have not been correcting existing member accounts UNTIL NOW. There have been a few people who encountered limitations due to their unique member name (Bones&Socks, and anyone with an apostrophe to name a few) we corrected them as we found them. Starting tonight, and until complete (probably a week or more) we will be correcting these issues. Please make sure the Email address listed in your profile is correct, when we change a username an email will be generated to inform you of the new name, without this you may be unable to login. Also we will be changing avatar filenames to match the username, if you see your avatar image broken (not showing or red X) please submit a help ticket and let us know.

So far of the few names I have changed (mostly avatar changes) the following notification emails were returned, these users need to correct their incorrect email addresses, and use the following usernames to log in.

Is there anything we can do ourselves to make this easier?

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.

unfortunately not, this all has to be done outside the forum. Members are not able to change usernames or filenames on the server. I spent about 3 hours last night and only got through # - D, this is gonna take a while :/

After spending a few hours and not getting to far with the membername {matches} avatar file name conversions (about 700 conversions) I had a consultant create a script to do it. What would have taken probably another 5 or 6 hours was done auto-magically in about 3 seconds…really!! :eek

 

All the above mentioned conversions, member names and avatars have now been completed. If you see errors, or wish to change your newly assigned member name, please submit a support ticket. CLICK

Jeff, you might want to submit a support  ticket yourself, as you have a little red X for your avatar

Jeff I logged out as Arias mom and created a new user name

Can you move all my stuff to that username. I am just dumb enough to not know how to create a ticket.

Well I've just joined and it wouldn't let me use underscores! (that is why my username is all one word- in case you were wondering!) I was just so relieved to be able to get in here and read your lovely messages that I was past caring! :offwall

PS. Sheshe I have a red brindle grey who looks just like yours! What is his/her name?

Er, I'm not sure if it's just me, but when I try to get into the chatroom I get an error message 'error 9639, unable to enter chat, there appears to be a problem with your forum session' I'm not with AOL I'm with NTL. Has anyone else had this problem?

Thanks, Clare. :(
