We have enabled the option for members to be able to change their own member names.

How It Works:

You login with your normal username the one you you always login with. (your display name will NOT work)

Go to your Settings - Personal Profile - Change Display Name

You can choose a "Display Name" that is separate from your "Log in UserName" and change your username once every 6 months.

Few Guidelines:

Don't impersonate any members or Staff, don't abuse it otherwise we'll disable it. ;)
No messaging us for member name changes please.

Any questions or help please post in this topic.

Adam it just means you can change every 30 days, not you have to.

I think what Donna has been doing when she was handling them all was adding a message in the user title or in the signature, it may be a good idea just to recommend people who change their name to do that :)

We can see who you are and Staff remain the same but as Matthew stated I leave it in their member title but it's no big thing.

I don't think I read this when I requested a name change! Sorry about that Donna...

For those who don't know me, I was Pixellate, but some things came up and I might be changing my website name and all so I decided to use my real name. I was surprised it wasn't taken already... :P

This was posted just after that lol that's why I asked Dan is we could enable it as too many were asking so you was actually the lucky last to have your name changed. :blush:

Really?! Yay! I was the last complete name change, muahahaha.

Thanks a lot Donna for that, really appreciate it. I don't think I will ever need another name change cause what's better then having your very own name? I'm sure you can say the same, lol. :P
