Hi, I just joined t'other day. smile I'm mostly interested in Advanced Driving (although I did sign up specifically because I had an urgent question to post in 'Speed, Plod and the Law' but it seems I can't post there for 14 days... damn it frown )

Anyhoo, could someone help me with usernames please?

I signed up with the username 'HighwayToad' then a day or so later decided on a much better name I wanted to use. So I've changed my username, logged out and back in, but when I replied on an Advanced Driving thread (the same one I'd originally posted in as 'HighwayToad') it is still showing that name against my new post.

Can anything be done about that (pretty please) ? - I much prefer my new username 'SpeedyTheTortoise'

Welcome to PistonHeads!

I'm afraid your posts will retain the username you had at the time they were created. Any you create from now on (like this one) will be shown as being by 'SpeedyTheTortoise'; you could always post on the Advanced Driving thread to explain the name change. smile

Not new to PH, but I'm damned if I can work out how to change my email address on my profile and get the newsletter sent to the new address...

Hi, joined a while ago, but not had a chance to post anything.
Looking for advise on transmission/drivetrain issues on my Macan. Dont see a specific section for those models. OK to put it under Porsche General ?

Regards

Porsche General or Front Engined Porsches

Or even Engines and Drivetrain in the Technical forums. smile

If you're a new member, welcome to PistonHeads!

We were all new once and understand it can be a bit daunting to post, especially with 170+ different forums on PH. But we're a friendly bunch really – we love to chat about cars and all manner of things.

Feel free to post on this thread to say hello or ask any questions you may have and we'll point you in the right direction. You may find our forum guide pretty handy too, which you can find here.

I just posed a thread under kit cars “ Bac Mono The Ultimate Kit Car Build” and linked that to a Pistonheads classified ad. Why was that removed when the link was contained to Pistonheads content ?

Welcome to PistonHeads!

Your thread broke one of the Posting Rules which can be read here which you agreed to adhere to on signing up.

Posting Rules said:
6. Do not post for the purpose of advertising for personal or business gain, unless you are responding to a thread in the Car Buying forum and sharing a link to your car that's for sale in the PistonHeads classifieds. Starting a thread specifically to advertise your car or business is not allowed.

What is the definition of “Car Buying forum”, not classified ad I guess. Are you saying I can respond to any forum where there is an on going discussion e.g. If I join a discussion under kit cars for example ?

There is a forum dedicated to car buying - click this link to go there.

The rules only allow you to post a link to your advert in this forum, and only in response to an appropriate thread.

Click on someone's username, then the 'Email Me' link on their profile page. smile

There is no separate PM inbox/outbox, just the ability to email members. Anyone PM'ing you will result in an email to your registered email address.

I’m Harry, 26 , French and I’m currently driving a 2004 Peugeot 307 2.0i manual running on E85 (cutting annual fuel bills by a 40%). I’ve created a topic for feedback for my future car and I’m looking to discover the forum. ^^
