re: chatbox display issues, & changing username


The chatbox issue you describe ... happens in some versions of Internet Explorer.

If you use "Firefox" as your browser, these issues go away. Firefox is free and can be by going here:
and selecting "Firefox"

Regarding changing your username, great idea! Glad you're choosing something positive!

You can change your username by logging in, then looking at the upper left corner of your screen, and click on "My account" to see your profile. Then, while inside your profile, click the edit tab to change your username. This will change your username on all your past, present, and future posts.

A suggestion to anyone reading: It's good to try a username that cannot be traced to your full name ... AND ... cannot be traced to any of your other online personas.

[Changing your username won't change the text of your prior posts. It won't change how anyone has replied to you. But at least it will change the username at the bottom of each of your own posts.]

thanks movingalong

thank you. my previous name wasn't meant to be negative, i meant it as a trem that i often use for procrastination but i could see it in screen being interpretied as negative and therefore wanted to change it. it's all about 'the postive'!

name change

Hi Jay,

I've been thinking, maybe MY username is a bit negative? 'Hazy' Jane, implies the lack of focus etc that does indeed seem to characterise me!!! Maybe I should let it go? It's just a name I like, from a Nick Drake song, but I'm being sentimental I suppose.

Anyway, hope you're finding PA positive :)

laser-like focus Jane 

It's an inside job...


heya, i did take it as from the nick drake track!

i see what you're saying about the 'hazy', if you're using it as a descriptive term and let others refer to you as such maybe change it. i think it's kinda cute but really getting out of the procrastination means getting serious and commanding to be taken seriously...?

i've been away for a few days so it's back to reality

yeah i'm finding the daily check in good to use but havn't yet spent a lost of time reading, i'm cutting down on online time which i know is a contridiction

good taste in music :)

Hi Jay,

I haven't been around for a few days either, busier than usual. Movingalong gave me a great suggestion re a name change though: Clarity Jane. I rather like it :). But, being indecisive, absent-minded and forgetful, haven't done anything about it, as yet.
