To the Moderators!

I wish to change my identity. The (bull) artist formerley known as Eleebana has asked too many silly questions and admitted to an excessive number of mistakes on the water. It's time to move on. Besides, my new CF designed sail boat is being launched today and we are naming her "Sabbatical II". Do you think you could change my CF name to be the same as my boat please? Absolutely no photos will be posted unless my wish is granted!

Re: To the Moderators!

Congratulations....er....Sabbatical II! Going North, South, or East? (West is a nice direction too, but bad for the bottom paint starting from where you are)...

Re: To the Moderators!

Do you realize that your old posts will follow your new name?

Congratulations Greg, and we hope that the launch and the party go well!

Cheers,

Re: To the Moderators!

There are easier ways to get our attention then starting a thread, like the help link at the bottom of the page. In any event, should you be wondering why your old login name doesn't work ....

G'Day Hummer,

Being a bit dense, I am unable to locate the aforementioned "help link".

Where is it exactly? Those of us often in need of help want to know!

Re: To the Moderators!

It is much better to make an administrative request like this with a Private Message to a moderator. No problem though, not everyone knows this.

That or a Private Message is fine.

Re: To the Moderators!

Sorry guys, I did mean the "Contact Us" button. It goes to what we optimistically call the "Help Desk". Most of the time I think it works out rather well.

Re: To the Moderators!

Could I suggest, tho, that since you have been known as Eleebana for so long, that perhaps you change your usertitle (I think that's what we call the label under our username) to something along the lines of "the bull artist formerly known as Eleebana"? For a while at least!

If you can't do that (it may be available only to green badgers) but would like to, let us know with a PM, or report a post in reply to this thread and I'll see if the mods can change it
