    HI all,
    Some people may find that their forum name has now changed from the move. This thread is where you can get it fixed.

    Why your name appears to have changed:
    Our old message boards had both the required user name but also an option to set a 'display' name. Thus some accounts technicially had two names. If you set the optional display name, then your posts would show under this display name and your forum persona effectively was the display name.

    However, the new message board software only allows user names. Thus during the import, your user name on the old board is your user name here. It does not recognize 'display names'.

    How to revert to your old forum name:
    Please just post under this thread stating you would like your old display name to be set as your new username here.
    We'll verify in the old boards that your username owns that display name and then reset it here for you. This is an admin feature and thus an admin has to do it, it's not something adjustable in your user settings, etc.

    We'll get your old name set as your new username here and you'll be back up and running :)

    Best regards,
    Less
