Hi there! Is there a way to change the display names? I can't seem to find a place to...

Hello Stevie T :)

Here's how to do it

 

Step 1 - select 'Forums' and then 'My Settings':

Step 2 - select 'Account Settings':

Step 3 - click on the little grey pencil symbol just to the right of 'Account Info':

Step 4 - type in you new display name in the 'Public Name' box:

Step 5 - click on 'Save' and your public display name will show as changed:

Step 6 - click on 'Chat Boards' from the top menu (furthest on the right):

Step 7 - you'll return to the Forum home page, but your name will still be the old one:

Step 8 - log out and back in again and your new name will show:

Good luck - looking forward to seeing what you choose! :)

That worked! Thanks so much :)

You're welcome Steve (although I noticed after I posted that you'd already changed it before I gave the instructions - thanks for playing along!) :foryou:

@Get Marwood & I I want to change some of my account info but the "pencil" is not present on my account page...is it only me? Could you please check yours for me?

Mine's missing too, so I assume it affects all of us, whatever it is they've changed. You'd imagine it's a glitch though, as it affects passwords too.

Did you think it was a punishment? :grin:

Just wait until GG finds out. He'll have a coronary.

Serves you right for dissing the turn around eras. Times, sorry.

Let me know if you find out what happened Bird. There was an update a month or so ago and a few things have gone the shape of the pear since.

Do I need to wait some time after my registration to receive the right of changing? Thanks in advance*

You shouldn't do, no. Have you tried the eight step process in the second post above? Try again Joseph, as it might have been because you've only recently been authorised to post publicly :wishluck:
