Renaming accounts
« on: September 19, 2014, 08:22:57 am »
Hi,

I'd like to know if when I change the name on my account, it changes everywhere in the system, or if it only changes the label in the client?

Would I be better off starting a new account with the new name, so that it's created properly with the new name?

Please advise.

Thanks,
-F

You'd need to create a new account. The rename function only changes the label in that wallet as you suspected.

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.
