How do I keep my actual name from appearing in the forum? I would not think that would be a default. I searched. I am not the first one to raise the issue. But the method to stop it I read on the forum does not seem to still exist.
It’s an option in Preferences (cogwheel under your avatar menu, top right) that users can edit. I’ve deleted your name.
Many thanks. I actually saw that instruction, but now realize I looked in the wrong place.
I cant seem to be able to edit mine…
I think user name isn’t editable, but name should be. You don’t currently have anything entered in the name box. I can edit your user name. PM me with any changes you would like.
Edit: Best course now is to leave a post in this thread with preferred username. Mods will effect the change.
I had that issue… a quick ping to @Eric and he not only managed to sort out my name/user but changed it and it even was done on the fly, didn’t even have to re-login IIRC … this forum system is pretty flexible it seems.
I edited the topic a tad from Done to I don’t
Please @andybob change my user name to “SonicYouth95” or something similar if necessary. Thank you
i went into prefs and can’t edit my user name…just want jc for username shown please
Minimum user name length in Discourse is three characters. I’ve changed you to j_c if you like that.
