Go figure. When I registered, I mispelled my name. How do I change my user name. It should be and not .
Sometimes my fingers are too fat for the keys.

If your name were Johnson or Smith, I would worry. Trust me no one would have noticed.
Does your last name start with the "J" or is that a middle initial. BTW I never admit to misspelling my name - too many Polish jokes out there!
got the note right this time!
3rd time the charm.

Actually I mis-typed and put an between the . I always have told friends, I was in the third grade before I knew how to spell my last name and now I guess I'll have to revise my story to later in life. The is a middle initial.

Easiest solution might be to re-register and ask Pekka to delete the original.

Larry I just saw Don's post to you. Never trust a guy with a last name as easy as Ellis. My Polish suggestion, change the spelling of your last name to match what your fingers have a nack of typing.

There is a story that that's what they did on Ellis Island between 1892 and 1924. Supposedly, if the immigration officer couldn't spell or pronounce your name, he changed it.
So you might try Smith -- not Smythe -- or Jones -- not Joan's.
This story is probably not true, or they would have obviously changed Paul to Pawl. Clicking on this sentence should get you closer to the "real" story. (http://www.genealogy.com/genealogy/88_donna.html?Welcome=1017725733)

I've always said that the only thing a person truly owns is his name. Sometimes that is good and somethimes it's a bad thing. Anyway, I e-mailed the moderator and asked for instructions to change the correction spelling. Re-registering is not an option, I've tried it and the process ends when you type in your e-mail address. It informs you another member (me) has already used that address. Just to clear things up, I'm Slovak on my fathers side and polish on my mothers side. Either way, I'd be happy to be either Slovak or Polish all the way. They are a hard class of working people. Now I'm not bashing other ethnic groups. I'd be happy to be whom ever my hertiage happened to be. I'm happy most of all to be living in this great country, the USA.
