Username Change

Postby David Thomas » September 5th, 2008, 11:18 pm

Hi I think this is the most appropriate place to ask this question, and this is not mentioned in the FAQ, so I figured I would post this. I have also tried to PM the moderators about this. However, I was only to be ignored. If I want to change my username, how can I do that? PLEASE TELL ME!!!

I don't think you can. Other then registering with another name.

You can change your display name--the name people see, but not your username (which only you know). Just go into "My Stuff" and then into "My Profile."

Sorry but don't see anything about changing a display name. Any help?

I'll do it for you: what do you want to change it to?

Just change it to "David Thomas"

Thank you!

But just so I know...is everyone else able to change their display name because I swear that there's nothing there about it in my profile.

Are you still planning on doing this or have you forgot?

I made the change for you.

Also, the option to change Display Names was disabled (for everyone), so I just enabled it. You should be able to make any display name changes yourself now.
