Changing username

#1

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.

Hi @diver110

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.

@andybob,

I cant seem to be able to edit mine…

Hi @Fernando_Fuentes,

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.

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 :slight_smile:

Hi joe,

Minimum user name length in Discourse is three characters. I’ve changed you to j_c if you like that.
