Changing username

    Here is the problem in a nutshell:

    When setting up the account I wrote in the wrong username. Once I realized the problem I immediately tried to change it – it seemed to work ok, and now shows the following:

    thismatterstoyouth (Change)
    Email Address
    Will not be publicly displayed.
    Web Address
    Shown publicly when you comment on blogs and in your Gravatar profile.


    For some reason, the blog homepage still shows the wrong name… “This MatteEs to Youth”

    I’ve deleted the cache, deleted the cookies, deleted the browser history, but nothing.

    I can’t seem to change this – can’t change the username because it already exists, can’t delete the account and start over because both usernames (the old and the new, right one) still exist.

    I will tag this thread to alert staff for you.


    I think I have figured it out! Thanks so much for tagging it, fingers crossed it has worked.
