To edit your display name, follow these steps below:
  • Click on your name in the top right of the forum
  • Select My Settings
  • Select Display Name
Once here, you will be able to alter your display name up to 3 times per every 30 days. A history of your usernames can be displayed on your main profile page (to the right of the screen, under User Tools) so that other members may be able to keep up with who you are.

Additionally, we have had some veteran members inquire about portraying a reference to their old usernames from the old forums (if they decided to go with another name in these new forums). Other than just typing a memo within your profile to let others know who you used to be, one may actually want to use the process above if it may help. Just follow the same steps to change your display name; typing in the old name you used to have from the old forums. After saving the changes, let it sit there for a few minutes then go back in and change it back to the new name you have chosen for this forum. If that works, then other members should be able to see who you used to go by on your main profile page in the name history section.
