    Question [Solved] Username?

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Colactix, Jul 30, 2015.

    Okay... I'm new here and I've been browsing the forums. I've come across a few post mentioning it's not a good idea to use your real name as your username. What do you think?

    As you can see I didn't find the advice in time. Is there any way to change it without creating a new account. I've searched in the settings but with no luck. Obviously if it's set in stone I'll have to lump it.

    Hi Chris,
    If you haven't already, check out this thread:
    https://www.writingforums.org/threads/your-screen-name-vs-real-name.139541

    Personally, I don't think it's a big deal. What's done is done and, actually, Chris Peach could well be a username. Maybe you should just change your Avatar and hey, presto, you're incognito ;)
    But if you're concerned then the thread above explains what to do about it.

    Thanks. I've contacted Wreybies to change it. I'm sure it's no biggie, but you can't be too careful. Cheers :)
