    NaNoWriMo Usernames and Profile links 2016

    Add your AW username, NaNo username, and a link, and I'll add it to the list.

    It probably seems like a little thing, but it is immensely easier on me bringing over a bunch of names to the first post if you do it the way the first people in this thread did it, where you make your user name the link instead of spelling out the web address separately.

    Same same same. All I want is a new name, that's all. A new name with all my halos and my wordcounts and graphs and post count and original start date.

    Exactly. I left all my Koneko accounts behind years ago, and use Sage everywhere else, but on NaNo, I'm stuck. I considered starting a new account and transferring the books and total word counts over, but I love comparing the graphs & I earned those halos.

    I wish they'd allow, like, one name change option, even just for a day or two. Seems like every year more and more people wish they could change their username, because more and more people are growing up with NaNo and when you're young, you make usernames you regret. I understand it'd be complicated and a lot of work, but there are way to put limits so people don't abuse the situation if name changes were allowed.

    I would be lilithWhite over at NaNoWriMo.

    (And I certainly agree with the desire to change username. Mine is a perpetual reminder of the fact that someone beat me to mine...)

    I'll tell you how it goes. Thanks, Lisa!

    Can someone explain to me what's the purpose of the buddies on Nano? As far as I can tell, you can't track their posts or chat with them (unless you take it to the PMs), so it seems like it's just having a list of names?

    I think it's mostly for tracking each other's word counts. Back from the bad old days when NaNo was small.

    ETA 2:
    Got a name change no problem. You may now find me over there as outerkate

    (Being polite and name-dropping Lisa probably helped. )

    They changed mine!

    Chompers, I use my buddy list to track my buddies' progress during NaNo. You can organize by name or by word count. I also use it to send NaNo Mail

    ETA: if your name is changed, do a new post with the link and name so I can update the first post

    Tracking friends, word counts, and following the progress of stories you're interested in. I've had people add me before and I have added people before just because their story sounds awesome and I want to keep an eye on it if anything comes of it.

    My name change request is in. If they do it, I'm naming my next superhero character after you, Lisa.

    edit: Lisa is now a member of my superteam. I'm now Maggie Maxwell.
