You can register with a new name or make a sub account of your current ID that will show posts made with that ID as if they were separate accounts. It's handy to do that because you can easily switch between IDs without having to log in and out. Also, you won't need to go through the registration process and come up with another email address. My rebekahc ID is a sub account of my Admin ID.

I just tried to register, but it is telling me that my email address is already being used (which it is by me under the user name I have had here for a long time).  I cannot figure out how to do the subaccount.  It is easier for me to not do the subaccount, because I don`t want to accidentally use my old user name.  Too many posts in the past showing the age and gender of my child, what state we are in, etc.  Need to be anonymous for now.

To create a sub account, you log in under your old account and create it there.  I can understand if you don't want to do that--but just to say how to do it in case you decide to later. 

We know the importance of anonymity. :heart:  You don't have to give any details--we can still try to help with general info.  :)

With the sub account, if you accidentally post under the wrong user name, it's a simple click to change which account made the post.  You get a drop down list at the very top of the reply box saying Use account: - if you accidentally use the wrong one, just edit the post and use the drop down to change it.



Sub accounts do not show in your profile or on the member list.  The only people who could see your sub accounts are the two admins (and it takes some digging which neither of us really have the time or inclination for, FWIW).  Also, if at some point you want to merge all your posts into one account, you can do that with sub accounts.

Unfortunately, our software only allows one registration per email address.

How uncouth would it be to suggest a new account then post in OT so Google doesn't index? I have no idea how admins would feel about it so don't go by what I say.

It's fine to register a new account, but one must have a second email address with which to do it.  That's part of why sub accounts are so useful.

twinturbo brings up a good point.  Might it be best to move this to OT where it's not indexed or has the train already left the station for that (meaning that it might have already been indexed in the day that it's been up)?

Mac posted the link I was thinking of in the cobwebbed brain of mine!

I managed to link my accounts.  Anyone who wants to is welcome to pm me.  I cannot post the story on the board.   I thought about posting this in OT initially, but still thought it might show up on google.

Apparently I cannot edit a post that I wrote as a guest.  Is that correct?  I am trying to delete a couple of sentences in my last post on page 1.  It won`t let me do it if I am logged in or if I am a guest.  There were a couple of sentences that I was intending to delete later.

ANY moderator can do that at your request.  Just send a PM and quote your post, indicating (maybe in red or something) precisely what you'd like modified.

Resistance isn't futile.  It's voltage divided by current.

Just checking to be sure you were able to get any MOD to edit your guest posts.
