    Hi, just send a PM to Administrator, or to Daisy1 (these are the addresses) giving the new name you would like to change to. You need to have posted 5 times to be able to send a PM so get writing :lol:

    Hello Mwhitfield.

    They arn't email address's , they are forum user names .

    Hope this explains things more - if you are still struggling just let us know
    and we will do our best to assist you . :thumbup:

    As Daisy1 says you will need 3 more posts to access the PM [private message] function .
    So keep posting then you will gain access to this.

    Once you have posted 5 or more times - to access PM just click onto the user name you need .
    [giverny in 'red' is our site administrator] click on her name then go down to private message .
    Request your change of user name to her , she will assist you with it all .

    Hope this helps...

    Anna.

    I wish I had "got it" as I cannot seem to contact the administrator in any way to change my user name. Sad innit? I may as well give it up altogether as it obviously far too complicated.
