I don't know if this is the correct forum to ask this or if there is some other way to find out...I'm a new subscriber to Dave's but now we are moving from one state to another and I will have a totally new internet hook-up and new provider, will I have to subscribe again to DG or is there an easier way? Sorry if this a silly question but I'm slightly computer impaired!

Nothing changes here at DG! We don't identify you by your ISP, but rather your username and password. So just make sure you remember those and you can login with that information from any computer in any city in the world! :)

To expand a bit on Dave's answer, once you've unpacked your boxes, have a new email address, and know the zone you're in you can (and should!) update your profile.

Why? Well, if you ever need your password sent to you, it can be done automatically and instantaneously - as long as a current email address is on your profile. (If you leave your old one intact, you'll have to email the helpdesk and wait for a reply.)

Having your current zone and/or city/state in your profile will help others give better answers to your questions. (Questions like "Can I grow a Banana Tree?" can only be answered with a "Well, it depends" unless we know whether you live in Florida or Minnesota ;o)

What if you wish to change your user name? What happens to the pictures you have sent in, and do the new ones have the name change on them? Thanks-Rich

A once-only request to change in username is happily accomodated - contact us with your first choice and at least one alternate.

When your name is changed, it is updated throughout the site. Everywhere your name is displayed by the system, your new name will automatically replace the old one.
