Trying to change my Ubuntu Wiki Name results in You cannot have two Ubuntu WikiNames.

Asked by Lloyd Dewolf

I'm trying to change my login from foolswisdom to LloydBudd . I think I'm supposed to do this in Launchpad at Update wiki names

When I enter:
Wiki Base URL:
Wiki Name: LloydBudd

The result is "You cannot have two Ubuntu WikiNames."


I feel like I'm looking at this task in a different manner than the developer.

Reviewed, but did not help my understand what I'm doing wrong:

The form includes "Example: YourName." there problably shouldn't be a period at the end of the example, because that isn't meant to be entered.

If you already have a wiki name set up, you do not need to create a new one. Somewhere, your previous wiki name should be in a text box beside the base URL "" (not editable). You do not need to add another row with that same base URL! Just change the name to the right of that and hit Save. Now you will have altered your wiki name without adding a new one.

Dylan, thank you! That worked. So easy. And I feel a little foolish now ;-)
