I think I've been rumbled! Someone close to me has hinted that they know my username, so I don't feel comfortable now about posting. I've tried to change it on the My Gransnet page but am only allowed to change my email address, not my user name. Help please!

Contact GNHQ. They'll sort it for you.

Thank you bagitha but whenever I click the Contact Us tag, a window comes up saying 'the site is not properly installed' ( or something like that). This could be to do with the security system on my internet connection, and I don't want to interfere with that!

Ah! thank you glassortwo - I'll try that.

bagitha Wed 29-Feb-12 21:59:02

bagitha Wed 29-Feb-12 21:59:22

smile again!

(Whisper) twelve minutes past ten and they still pop up!

They never knock off. shock

wotsamashedupjingl Wed 29-Feb-12 22:19:10

Must go cross-eyed after a while. hmm

Carol Wed 29-Feb-12 22:24:23

They daren't go to bed until you knock off Jings. grin

wotsamashedupjingl Wed 29-Feb-12 22:26:54

Oh Carol! grin That was a good laugh!

I'm off to bed now, so they can shut their laptops. smile

Carol Wed 29-Feb-12 22:29:50

It's OK to turn the lights off now CariGransnet - she's gone! grin

Carol Wed 29-Feb-12 22:31:34

I bet she's peeping in case she can catch you out with a late night question! hmm

Annika Wed 29-Feb-12 22:46:45

Bet she has got Gransnet on her smart phone and it beeps every time we post ... did you hear that I think it was a beep !!!! wink

glammanana Wed 29-Feb-12 23:01:11

Absolutely right - we never knock off. Way too entertaining to want to miss a thing

thanks to CariGransnet at GNHQ who persisted all day to help my GN site display properly. They never DO sleep; not sure how they manage it!

JosieGransnet (GNHQ) Fri 02-Mar-12 09:44:26

Lots and lots of coffee, eGJ brew

wotsamashedupjingl Fri 02-Mar-12 09:46:40

Oh I could have done it quicker than that for you. hmm

wotsamashedupjingl Fri 02-Mar-12 09:46:52

wink !!!

Charlotta Fri 02-Mar-12 09:47:03

Get another e-mail address! Your provider must allow you more than one email address. Take this address and start over again in GN. I have done that, easy peasy.

wotsamashedupjingl Fri 02-Mar-12 10:25:55

Oh!! So, you've tried to knock it on the head too, Charlotta!

How many e-mail addresses have you got so far? smile

Charlotta Fri 02-Mar-12 18:28:02

Not as many as you jingle!

wotsamashedupjingl Fri 02-Mar-12 18:54:54

I don't get a new email account each time! I just unsubscribe and then rejoin with a name that is slightly different but recognisable.
