Question about FixYa Service

1 Answer

How do you change your FixYa nickname? In the confirmation email I got it said: "Click here to login and change your nickname and password to something that you can remember" but it doesn't seem to give the option to change your nickname on the edit profile page. It allows you to change your email address, password, first and last name, country, city, state and gender (lol), but that's it. I just want to drop the '_is' and replace it with 'gyver'. 'Dodgegyver' sounds so much better than 'dodge_is' :-(

    I emailed Lauren and she got back to me today. She said it may be a bug, or the system was changed but the confirmation email was not updated. She reported the issue, and will get back to me. Thanks for the help!

Hello,

I would suggest sending an email to [email protected] and see if she can make the change for you. Lauren is the Community Manager and is THE person to get in touch with if you cannot find an answer on the FAQ page.

BTW, you can still rate this post. Thanks! Welcome to Fixya.

Change nickname

You cannot update your nickname on Fixya. It looks like those are automatically generated. You can, however, update your full name which is the name that is actually displayed when you post content on Fixya.

Hope that helps!

Trish825, I had an account here at fixya since last year! Suddenly about 3 weeks ago my email address, nickname, and password became invalid when I would attempt a login. Fixya didn't or couldn't restore my old nickname with a new password. Guess it's not in their "to-do" list. Anyway just get a new nickname and new password like I did. Bye for now. 12fixlouie aka louie12fix
