Hi, I've joined Freecycle but don't want to use it now as my full name appears on the postings.

Thank you :-D

Thanks but there's no option there to change what info appears on the headings of my postings. :-(

is this freecycle.org ?

as I signed up there 1 minute ago and where does it even ask for your real name at signup

I don't know if it does.
All I know is my full name apears on every post I make.
Maybe it's from that stupid Yahoo we have to be in to join.
Why we can't just join with our regular Email addys I don't know.
Someone always has to complicate the simplest of things.

Burn it?
I might have to.
I fear I may be too mean to actualy give it away.
:oops:

In your account options in yahoo itself there is an option to change your display name. mine shows as john smith (not my real name)
just change your name in the yahoo [FONT=Arial]Address/Contact Information section

Thank you.
I think I've done it.
Mind you, it took 10 mins of staring at the page to realise that I had to click on "Hi peter" to get to edit my profile.
Like I said "Someone always has to complicate the simplest of things".
Now, who on Earth decided that "Hi Peter" really meant "Edit Peter's profile"? lol
Yes, lol. You gotta laff.

Now I gotta give something away to see if it's worked :-\
