User Name Merge is now Here (Two user names)

Post by mattash » Sat May 05, 2018 10:43 am

Hey guys I know you have asked for it for a while now. If you have two user names and want to merge them send me a message so I can take care of it.

I thought we weren’t allowed to have two different usernames?

How is this even possible?

This may be a stupid question or I may actually be late to the party but I have noticed past posts from my username that I didnt post. Anyone else?

There was a glitch when doing the back up and restore that some usernames were shifted to another user.

Oh ok.
Am I the only one with this username or should I make a different one?

What happens when you make a post after merging user names? Will both names be on the post?

The old user name will be deleted with the new user name getting the combined post count along with the original start date. Plus all the old post will reflect the new user name.
