When I first found TFL, I had just started getting on-line and I gave my user name in all caps. I've since learned it's sort of like yelling and not polite. So how do I change GRAYFOX to Grayfox?

Grayfox-
Email me when ready. I'll delete your profile and you can reregister....will first try to change your handle, but I've not had good luck with this.

Rich, it can be done, but it's a pain in the ass.

Here's what you have to do: Find the .cgi profile for the member in question and download it. Change the file name, and the name inside the profile itself, and reupload in ASCII format. Change permissions to 777.

It takes enough time to do this that I usually just delete the profile in question, it's faster, and it gives the person in question a chance to make any updates they wanted in their email, sig, or homepage right then and there.

Thnaks, Spark. I've had mixed success with the procedure. WS-FTP is real sensitive to the control characteres.
In any case, we got Grayfox squared away.

Email me the requested change. (I assume caps removal? Italians ar good at that )

I'll try to change it to the requested. If I fail, we'll delete and let you re-register.
