I want to give a gift subscription to my sister in law who (as far as I know) is not a Daily Kos member.

I would like her to receive an e-mail saying something like "Robert Lightbourne is giving you a one year subscription to a fun website called Daily Kos that is aimed at electing Democrats and discussing political issues. Please invent a user name and give us a try. The best way to check us out is to look at new articles and comment on them if you want... to do that go to "http:\www.dailykos.com/diaries" and take a look.

    Unfortunately she does have to have an account before you can gift her. I totally agree that what you propose would be ideal! You can make the account yourself with her email and it will give her instructions for logging in and confirming.

    If she ends up wanting a different username, we can change it if she asks before she makes any comments or writes diaries.

    Thank you for your support!

    Thanks so much for the advice. Very useful to know that the recipient can
    change username, if they request the change before posting comments or

    Thanks for asking about this great gift idea -- of course we're big fans of it. :)
    Since you've seen this reply, we'll close the ticket. If your sister-in-law decides that the username isn't what she'd like, please have her open a new ticket here at Help Desk before she uses the account, and we can get it settled.
