      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

First, thank you GP.com for adding this FAQ section! It is much needed and appreciated!

 

Secondly, though some posters have changed their names, successfully, others have had a problem with it. If that happens, what should the poster do?

Well, I guess I've found the answer to my own question: Either email help@grandparents.com or send a PM to Latoya (just click on her username and go from there).

 

ETA: The new directions, given in the first post here, seem to be working beautifully! Just want to add that, after you make the change, you will probably have to log out and log back in to see it.

Apparently, a number of posters are still using their email addies, sometimes containing both their first and last names, as their usernames here on GP.com. For greater privacy, it's a very wise idea to change that. Why? B/c, for example, recently, a concerned member let a couple of us mods know that she was able to find out where another member lives and works, etc., just via the other member's email addy!

 

The directions given above, usually work, and on the offchance that they don't the previous posts tell you the next step to take.
