Do you think its stupid to delete your CM account and make another one cuz you dont like your screen name thingy?

  • Not stupid if that what you want to do. Lots of ladies change their screen name.

  • Yes. I never understood people that do that. You're still a doula, you just aren't a practicing doula... Keep your name!

  • that is true...I did love doing it and want to do it again one day after the kids get bigger... the unpredictable hours of birth make for an unpredictable work schedule...

  • I don't think it's silly or stupid. If you want a new screen name...go for it!

  • Not silly...
    Im wanting to change mine too.. Just have to come up with a new name & I might one day. but its annoying cuz of email (CM will say u already have an account & I dont think deleting current account is automatic?)

    Id also like a "fresh" account for some reason.. I know stupid! But Ive had this account for a while & I cant imagine what some people would find if they snooped around all my Q&A over the past year.. I know of a few things Ive answered a bit to harshly while PMSing LOL.

    Wish they had an easier way of changing your screen name on here.

  • It's a better reason than changing it because you've burned so many bridges with the one you have or so you can "forget" to delete the old one and support yourself in conversations because nobody else will.

  • I was on here for 2 years, then changed mine, and I don't think it's dumb at all. A hassle, maybe, but not dumb. lol It was a pain and people treated me differently for a while and those who didn't know me treated me like a newbie lol, but after a while everything went back to normal :)

  • Can you just change your screen name without starting over from level 1?
