Changed my name...but its still me.

Hello Fellow Cozumel Addicts. Just FYI, I have changed my screen name from "Queeneee" to "SimplyRed MN". No deception intended. Never thought that I'd actually become so vocal on the forum when I originally chose the name. Have hated it for the last year or more.

So from now on its simply.....

'Red (aka queeneee)

Cheers

I've been waning to do that for years as well but not sure how to go about doing it. I'm not very tech savvy and can't even remember how I set up my account in the first place.

From the TA help section:

http://www.tripadvisor.com/help

How do I change my display name?

To change your display name please follow the directions below:

1. Go to your Profile page under the “Your TripAdvisor” link on the top of the page

2. In the Settings section, click Edit.

3. Enter your new name in the “Your Name Displays as” field.

Note: You can only change your display name once. If you have chosen a unique screen name as your display name, your previous screen name will be retired and can’t be used again, by you or any other member.

If you are unable to change your display name, you may have changed your name already or you have more than 25 forum posts. You may still be eligible to change your name. Please contact us and give us three choices for your new display name. We will attempt to make the change.

Thanks Red, I'll have to give a new name some thought and then give it a try.

Some names are so unique and wonderful !

I wish I'd have sat and thought harder about mine, even tho I know how it's pronounced, others have difficulty with it - my nickname is Gailie and my last name begins with "B" so I thought Gailieb would be a no brainer, but it's not.

So then I guess you take the chance if someone else has chosen the name you'd like to have...... Oh well, live and learn.
