You almost have to go back to schools somewhere and take another computer course.  Computer experts that make these changes just don't realize how difficult they make it for us amatuers.  We are not technisions.


A while ago, Icreated a PatNet...I had to use "ValleyGirl" because "Val" was already in use....Now I see that my user name will be "ValleyGirl" for this new system.  I would prefer "ValinMtl"...since I usually used "Val" on the old BB.  Can I change my user name..if so how?  I have tried but doesn't seem to work. Thanks ValinMtl

Nothing is worth more than this day!

You can change your username and it does appear that  "ValinMtl" is available.  Follow these steps to change your username:

1.  Make sure you are logged in

2.  Go to the Update Info button at the top of the screen

3.  Change your username and then click save. 

The next time you log in, you will need to use your new username.  Let me know if you run into any problems.
