You could've pranked us all by saying that HTG forums will be closed on April 1 :D

Sign up now to reserve your name? from the Discourse FAQ

Can I be the same user on all Discourse forums?
We do offer a preliminary but functional global nickname registration. If you want to be consistently known as @kittenbunny99 across all Discourse instances, you can. You'll also get a user page here that optionally lists all your forum memberships.

For now, sign up on meta and that will globally reserve your nickname for later use.

Not that I want to be KittenBunny99!!

Yes I did. Remains to be seen what effect that will have on Tuesday. I assume that I will have to sign up for HTG Discourse, but don't know what effect this has.

The Avatar was the annoying part as you have to sign up to Gravatar to assign an Avatar ???

@whs, This is the only forum I belong to. Although I have visited others, never joined because I didn't like the set-up. Give it a chance, might turn out okay. If not you can always pass later. Just like many here sign-up, come on for awhile and you never hear from them again.

@GS, Didn't get that far just wanted my same username.

Well If my posts look like this on Tuesday. I will be a Cappy Hamper.

My avatar had to gain a little weight to get it to fit to their specs.

Joe,

Go to the Meta at the top of the page : http://meta.discourse.org/t/ne.....se/5456/12 notice the difference in the link = meta ?

Rick,

They said the same about my Gravatar name, I think because it's somewhat linked to the discourse forum so it registers as taken ???

Edit : Go here Joe : http://meta.discourse.org/ log in there and you should be fine.
