Hi

I would like to change my user name on BGG as my current name has a developed a negative association for me. I understand from several threads that it is not possible to do so, so I guess that leaves me to create a new one.

The only problem is that I have a lot of play data on my account that I would like to keep. Is there any way to migrate this to a new account?

Many Thanks
Pouria

I don't know any way to do it automatically. You'd have to do it by hand.

There are some mobile apps that sync play data with BGG (e.g. Board Game Stats or ScorePal). You could probably migrate play data using one of them.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

Given nearly 2000 plays that seems are little... long winded.

I understand that BGG cannot work through the many feature requests that are made but it does leave me in the sad place of not being able to change my user name without giving up several years of data

Maybe sometime in the future.

Thanks Steve, ill have a look at those. I guess I could create a new account now and see what works and what doesn't.
