Title: Display & User Names
Post by: Christopher Sanderson on March 13, 2017, 01:06:53 pm
Quite a few Forum members seem not to know that their name displayed on the Forum - Display Name - is different from their User Name and that the Display Name is editable by them in their forum Profile.

It is inadvisable to use an email address as a Display name due to spambots. We suggest you at least omit the @domain part of your display name.

Oh and PLEASE do not use ALL SCREAMING CAPITAL LETTERS!

Good information but unfortunately it doesn't work: systematically the site shows the message: password error.

I also cannot change my User Name. I have tried repeatedly with no success.

No, you can't. But you can change your display name. Go to Profile and click Account Settings.

And that is exactly what Chris said: You can change Display name but never User name.

Iím sorry. I meant to write that I cannot change the Display Name. I have tried numerous times with no success.

Is this how you tried?

Yes. No luck. Always says I am using the wrong password, though I am using the exact same password I use to login to the forum.
