Old Forums member with question

G'morning,
I was a Forum member for several years a couple of years ago. We have owned RV's for years, but got away from AS two years ago, and bought another brand. (Mistake)

We've just bought our third AS, it's a 2001 30' Excella, beautiful trailer!

I received an email this morning which sounds like I'm a new member, but actually, I did nothing to give anyone the impression that I had "dropped out".

I guess my question is, have the Forums changed within the past couple years, or what?

LarryC

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

Welcome back, Larry.

Thing here on the Forums are pretty much the same as they were a few years ago.

The reason that you received a new member welcome is that you apparently used a new screen name. To be recognized as an existing member, you will need to sign in under your old screen name.

Brian

Could be, I suppose, but I don't remember changing anything. I logged out and logged back in, and the same thing happened.
It's not a big deal, but just wondering what happend? The old info has to be floating around out there in cyberspace, I guess

I would like to get rid of that "New Member" thing. Got any idea of how?

Thanks

Hi Larry. I just did a little research on your Forums membership. I did find your past membership number 17379, having joined on 10/22/2006 as a 3 rivet member with 121 posts.

I think that I have determined what happened. When you recently tried to sign in with your old information, you used the screen name LarryC. Your original membership screen name was Larry C. By leaving the space out, the computer did not recognize you as an existing member, and signed you up with the new screen name of LarryC.

Try signing in as Larry C with the space, and let us know what happens.

Brian

Larry - if you click on the contact link at the bottom of the page you can message the help desk and ask to have this newer account and the older one merged. We can reset your password or update the old account as needed to get it set up again.

It worked! Thanks for the help, now, I'll see if I can get the two accounts "merged"

Technology is great, huh?

Hello Larry C

I think since you went away and bought an SOB and then came back to the fold that you need to be a new member forever.

Just joking!

Glad that your back.

You need to bring us up to date on what you have been doing and where you have been traveling. That is the price you pay for leaving.

Did you keep your AirSafe hitch or what?

We've been using the SOB for the past couple years. Other than having 3 slides and 13500 pounds to drag around I will say the large living area was nice. BUT, what a pain in the butt to maneuver in some of the tight campgrounds we stay in,
So,, we bit the bullet and bought a very clean 2001 30' Excella, on eBay,, from Woodland RV in Grand Rapids. GOOD EXPERIENCE!
This weekend we're trying it out.
its good to be back! @

Yes, we kept the Airsafe, and bought a new Reese Dual Cam for weight distribution ...excellent combination! _

Glad to see your back... and its like you never left :-)

Hows that airsafe? You are the reason I got mine and loved it ever since.

Welcome back.
