πŸ€” Tell Us About Your AARP Community Board Name!

➑️See @Vexed post on how to CHANGE your username. Awesome "helpful" member!⬅️

 

(12/5/22) Hello Everyone:

 

When we register to use this AARP Community Board, the system "assigns" us a USERNAME based on our 1st name followed by the first character of our Last Name. Then adds several numbers to end.

 

Some of us keep this "assigned" USERNAME, while others "edit" it to their liking.

 

(1) .Did you keep the "assigned" USERNAME? πŸ€”

 

(2) .If you "changed it" why did you choose that username? πŸ€”

 

Lol, I often "giggle" at some of the "changed" USERNAMES. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

Hope to hear from you!

 

Thanks,

@APassionateLife Did you just backspace out the numbers then hit Update? I am not sure, but it might work, if you erased all of the name and entered NicoleW. I thought it might be worth a try.

(12/25/22) UPDATE: @Vexed , your way said it got "changed" and is suppose to be NicoleRetired2020. Lol, figured I would get "fancy" - now to see IF it is changed I guess in 24 hours. Worked with databases and our changes didnot happen immediately. Hmmm, your username, lol, are you "vexed"... Sorry, I had to go there and NO pressure as usual to answer my nosey questions. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚ Thanks for your help, Nicole πŸ€ŽπŸ€—πŸ€” (Our Front Porch Forum)

@APassionateLife , You are welcome. Happy to have helped. I am sometimes "vexed" at things I see and hear nowadays. (Looked a little cooler than "confused".) πŸ˜Š

πŸ‘‰(12/25/22) Hey @Vexed , yes I did just "erase" numbers at end. Heading to try your way. Fingers, toes, eyes, legs it works this time! πŸ™„ Thanks, Nicole πŸ™‚ (Our Front Porch Forum)

Thanks for starting this thread.

 

My user name is the name of one of my favorite Greek islands. I chose it because I thought it would be unique, but it turns out that there are several others that incorporate the same name.

My user name goes back to January 2009.

Not sure how it worked back then.

Mine is my first Name and the first 3 letters of my last name.

(12/5/22) Hi @OneDayMatisyahu, thank you SO MUCH for your kind words. πŸ€— Lol, NO Ace Badge for me = I opted out. But thanks for the suggestion! Nicole πŸ™‚ (Our Front Porch Forum)

Me, so far using my "assigned" USERNAME. πŸ™„ Hmmm, may change on down the road.... Nicole πŸ™‚ (Our Front Porch Forum)

Conversationalist

Given a 'random alpha numeric name- but with an option to change... I sure will change to something more 'me'. First... numbers..? I'm not a number πŸ€”

.

With my love of music, I wanted to use a hopeful song as my username---> One Day Matisyahu is a song by an American singer - Matisyahu----> Matisyahu - Wikipedia

Yeah, Almost everybody thinks it's Japanese/ or other Asian meaning;.. it's not.

.

A song of Hope, and something to look forward for ------> Matisyahu - One Day (YouTube Version) - YouTube

.

And of course, change my Avatar.

.

PS - in less than a month you have won the 'Award for the Most Engaging Member' we've seen in the last two years. πŸ˜€

.

If you wish you may try for the 'Ace' badge. It kinda looks nice on an Avatar - looks like you're 'special' or 'in-the-know' Many of the 'Rewards Fanatics' members have them.

.

Thanks for sharing the story of your name. Yours was the one I found most intriguing. I was among those assuming that Matisyahu might be Japanese! 

The lyrics are beautiful! Thanks for introducing me to the song and artist. Truly a Gift of God.

πŸ‘‰(12/24/22) I agree with you @naxos . Hi @OneDayMatisyahu , you took the time to set up something "unique" for you. Way to go!!! Thanks, Nicole (Our Front Porch Forum) πŸ™‚ πŸ‘ˆ
