Name in postings
« on: February 07, 2024, 01:30:36 pm »
Hi,
I've been following various subjects on the forum for years but have only just posted.  Is there any way I can change my name as it appears on posts? Currently it is my email address which I assume was a default but its probably not a great choice with the spambots roaming the web. I've looked in profile options and there doesn't see to be an option to change it.
Regards,
paul

As far as I know, the user can not change own username.  Kindly ask a forum moderator (their usernames are EEVblog, Halcyon and gnif, and Simon :)), maybe they can do that for you.

a moderator that does things without being noticed is probably a good thing :P

Let me guess ... the Paul name generator wouldn't allow 10000?

I told my friends I could teach them to be funny, but they all just laughed at me.

The user name has been changed, but I still see Paul's email address in several quotes above. Could these be edited out as well -- either by the authors of the individual quoting posts or by a moderator?  (Thank you, Simon!  :))
