    I created my account but when I first signed up it asked for name so I put my real name thinking I would put my handle in later. But now I can't find anywhere to edit that so I had to create a new account. Does that feature exist?

    I believe it specifically says you can't change your handle after sign up. I guess you can sign up for another account and edit the email address of that new account after sign up

    That's exactly what you need to do. Do it now, before you gain status with the "wrong" user name!

    Thanks for the replies, I guess I'll just keep this user name. Back on flyertalk it was registered back in 1999 by someone who used it 1 time!

    Reach out to Randy in a conversation - see this thread ;) You can also keep 2 IDs - it's allowed.

    I did that too, I missed the spot to enter the handle and it populated that field with my name. I had Mr. Gargoyle contact Randy, and it was fixed very quickly. Maybe something needs to be clearer in the signup process for those of us who aren't super computer savvy.
