Forum Profile Name RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi, I'm trying to change my forum name from DimitriAyrapetov to "Dimitri Ayrapetov", but I receive a message that it's already taken. I'm fairly confident that it may be from another Live ID account that I may have used in the past. Is there any way for me to reclaim my forum name with a space between first & last name?

  • Hi Dimitri,

    I've faced with a similar issue. An old Live ID account was registered many years ago. I don't remember an e-mail address which was used for registering the account. So, I can't access it any longer. It would be great if Live ID service will add a feature for reclaiming old unused names/accounts.

  • I think in your situation the only solution will be to use double space. I have to use double space myself because of this problem.
