I know how you feel!
I am changing mine but will still be "obvious" lol, so hoping someone doesn't nab it before I can get it :o :lol:

It is the end of an era - but try to remember that era was one of random errors and problems (potentially 'fatal'), in a restrictive environment... :wink:

Will other people called Kate be really angry with my if I change my username to just 'Kate'? I'm really worried people will hate me if I do it!

No, but I know that there are other users called Kate - and perhaps they were wanting to use just their name, too.

If you're not fast, you're last - so if you're the first person to register using Kate then it's yours!


It is the end of an era in a way. I'll be glad for the new forum's new joining dates, it'll stop me occasionally realising I've spent nine years on this site, which makes me feel old as I remember it being the new! rat forum ...
Everything happens to everybody sooner or later if there is time enough.

Back when talk of the new forum started, I asked whether we would still have access to our PMs on this one once it's locked (obviously viewing only, not sending new ones). Do you know yet what the situation will be with this? I have been meaning to copy all my PMs, but just wondering if this is now an urgent task? And if so, how long do we have before this one is locked? Don't want to lose them all suddenly :o

There will still be access to see the old - I'm not copying any of mine anyway.

Ooh. I kinda do too! Might steal your idea!


I'm also fidgeting. It's sad that I've decided not to go out to do the food shopping until I've seen the new forum :oops:
