Do you need to have the name on your previous posts changed?  If not, then you only need to create a new , second account, which you can do yourself.

Which you really shouldn't do as the system might see you as having multiple accounts and will lock you out...

Definitely agree with Merg here. I'd contact a Super Mod or an admin. I'm not sure if a mod can do that or not.

Do NOT create a second account. That is an absolute violation of the forum rules. We will immediately ban the newest account - and if it appears that you're creating a second account to spam or harass on the forum you may end up with all accounts banned (and IPs blocked, etc).

Also for people with a post history we like to keep the history intact ... even after a name change. Send a PM with what you want and we'll see what we can do.

Mike, I'll be completely honest with you. Using DBSTalk on my iPad is like visiting an alien world. I can't even figure out how to send you a PM. Has anyone else given you feedback about how unfriendly the IOS app is? It makes me very reluctant to visit the forum.

So, how do I send a PM?

Not sure if this works with the DBSTalk app, but I use Safari on my iPad.  With Safari, all you have to do is click on the Mod's picture (e.g. View Profile) and then you'll see a "Send me a message" button near the right side of the screen.

The app is the same way. Also, in terms of the app, the admins have pretty much no control over it, as it is developed by another company. They just license it.

oh i love the app, use it more than i do the website by far, so much easier especially with unread the way it works...

 

to pm someone in the app, you se the little pic for the avatar right on the name of a person?  just click it, it will bring up their page.  Then on the top right there is a mail icon, click it and send your message.  then open copnvos to see the replys..  

 

you can also just go to convo and click the pencil at the top and start a convo there. but then you have to know there name exactly how its spelled too.
