Display & User Names
« 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!

Chris

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

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.

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.

Yes, same with me: wrong password.
it is the same if you request to delete your account.
I tried to do this with Safari, Chrome and Firefox. It is not a problem with the web browser.
I wrote an email to the support on august,10 : no answer.

This site and this forum is not manage and doesn't answer to the minimum of security and European rules.
Unfortunately we can do nothing,  flee before subscribe >:(
