Hey, can I change my user name to Aerows

like I am on DU instead of AerowsX? I tried to register as that and it said it was taken, but then I put in my information and it wasn't recognized. I'm using my same icon, and will readily answer any information you need to confirm that I am the same Aerows as I was on DU.

Thanks!

1. You have to get permission from DU Admins

2. On DU Skinner said to email the request to Elad

Here's his email. http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=inbox&action=send&rid=128469

Otherwise your username there is reserved to keep people from just signing up here and using it.

3. From my post on DU

If you simply must use the same username, you can request it here on DU by sending a DU Mail message to Elad with the title "Discussionist username" so he can release your name to you. We have set aside all usernames from DU so trolls can't grab them on Discussionist, but we have not copied over your email or password for privacy reasons.

4. Thanks!

I sent a DU mail message. Cool beans, and that was a good idea so that trolls didn't grab accounts and assume identities from the DU community.

5. I did not know that. When I signed up here I had no idea they would remove me at DU.

Absurd, for mocking a troll by reposting what they wrote before they could edit.
And then their post hidden making it look like my post was the original insult.

Host of 7 fora, my post hidden (fine, OK) but then the PPR.

Too strange.

Anyway, all I have of my identity is my avatar, Ginny dog!
