  • No, once an account has been created, the username cannot be changed. It's a Homeland Security Guideline that most social networking sites have to follow.

  • Hi,

    We do not currently have a way for you to change the screen name on your account.

    However, you can have your CafeMom account canceled and then create a new one, with a new screen name.

    Here's how to cancel your CafeMom account:

    Click the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of any CafeMom page.
    Under 'Self-Service', click the link that says 'Cancel my CafeMom Account'.
    Let us know why you're leaving (optional).
    Click the 'Submit' button.

    We will process your request and you will receive a cancellation confirmation once your account has been canceled. At that point, you can create a new account.

  • Just go to one of the creative moms who make signatures and have 'em make you one that says, "Yeah. I misspelled Sparrow. What of it???"


    "I meant to do that."

  • Before you cancel your account I would contact CM directly using the "contact us" link at the bottom of your screen and ask them if they can clear that email address so you can use it if you recreate an account.
