The strangest thing just happened. I posted on the "Alternative to Streetwise" thread and a completely different Username appeared!

So this is a test to see whether that was a one-off.

HQ any comment, please? It's most disconcerting. I don't like it evermore (as my grandson would say).

‘To post on a Local talk board, you must have a Local nickname. This can either be the same as your current nickname, or a completely new one. You only need to set this once. It won't be changed after that.’

I think this means you already have a local nickname.

It wasn’t a post on a local site it was a thread on the normal site though oldmeg

Yes - you chose a different nickname for local so when you post on a local thread that's what comes up

Okay - so my memory is definitely going grin

Thank you.

The new local forums have been incorporated as a subject on the main forum and so show up on the Active list.
I kept the same name on both but some people didn't. I think GNHQ are still perfecting the changes.
