Topic: Choosing/Changing your Displayed Username (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


If memory servs me correctly - way back in 2009 or something I registered on this Forum. It's changed a few times (see the ReadOnly Old Forum section). I think I originally used the name 3Dprinter, but quickly decided to use me real name (well, the name every one calls me) - Msquare.

There was an option to set the name on the profile attribute page.

This has apprently been removed "recently" (I've not been on the Forum for a few months), and my old name has poped back up. Using google it still finds hits on Msquare, etc, but on the Forum all the generated listing and all use the 3dprinter name now.  :smiley-cry:  :(

Hrmph. Options
  • Learn to live with a bad choice made 10 years ago  :smiley-sad:
  • Pester the forum people to restore the option to choose the display name. :smiley-evil:
  • Create a new account, being called a Newbie again... :smiley-eek:

What to do?


It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.


Ok, I'll pester as well.

Since the username "/dev" was taken, I registered as "-dev" and displayed it as "/dev".  After the changeover, there is no such choice.  And now other users (especially the newest) refer to me as "-dev".  Not the same cachet.

Really, I used to be /dev.  :(


Since the username "/dev" was taken
What if the impostor shows back up?  How will we know which one to shoot at?

Please do not PM with technical questions or comments.  Keep Arduino stuff out on the boards where it belongs.



At the risk of being shot, I have to ask if it was a problem before?
