Help With Changing Nicname When Posting Reviews

A long time ago I created a nicname to do a review on a printer, never realizing I would be  stuck with that nicname for every review I do. Now when I review an appliance such as a washer, the nicname still says "nice printer". Is there a way to reset my nicname so it will make sense on all reviews I do?

Re: Help With Changing Nicname When Posting Reviews

I guess the good side of not being able to change my nicname, is that people might read my reviews out of curiosity. "Nice Printer"? In a washing maching review? Smiley Very Happy

Re: Help With Changing Nicname When Posting Reviews

Honestly, not being able to change your nickname is NOT always a good thing. Case in point - I am a member of the Tech Insider Network. Reviews submitted from purchases appear under one nickname (Panther6834). While all of my original Tech Insider Network reviews show as having been posted by Panther6834, due to a typing error, somewhere along the way, my TIN reviews started showing as having been submitted by Panther68. I've been trying to get this corrected for the past 6 months, so far to no avail. Even now, reviews written by me are appearing using both of these usernames. Since I've been unable to get the 'Panther68' reviews corrected to 'Panther6834', I was hoping I'd be able to just change my purchase review nickname...but, according to what in reading here, I can't even do that. So, what am I supposed to do? Continue having reviews posted under two different nicknames? There NEEDS to be a way of correcting this...especially considering I can PROVE that reviews posted by 'Panther 6834', AND reviews posted by 'Panther68' ARE reviews submitted by me.
