    Dumb Old Newb Question

    Not sure where this should go, or who would be the mod to ask, so I'm putting it here.

    I (re)joined AW last month. I was a member several years ago and just couldn't remember my old username. Now I do. Is there a way the two can be merged, keeping this username, password, sig, and email?

    Thanks!

    I'd send a PM to the admin, or do a member search for a mod.

    Most of the time you'll see a 'welcome' post in the newbie threads by one of them; I would keep the old name to myself until one of them confirms it with you.

    Oh, and welcome back. I'm new myself so likely didn't know who you are anyway

    Thanks Moon Daughter!

    I took Wilde's advice, and sent a PM to Mac.

    It's no problem to combine them. They will take care if it when they get a chance.

    Sure; PM me as Medievalist or as my sekrit alternate ID AW Admin, and I'll see if your old ID still lives.

    If it does I can merge ap123 with the old ID, or the other way 'round. Just let me know who/what you'd prefer to be.
