Username versus Nickname - No full disclosure

Postby PigPointerOuter » Fri Oct 05, 2012 6:49 am

Your Nickname is simply what is seen when someone clicks your mood. Your username is associated with everything else, from groups, to scoreboard to the forums.

Now that you know this, you should also know that you can change your username as well. On your dashboard just change it to what you want and click the update tab.

Yeah. I always assumed they were the same until I changed my nickname in the client and noticed it didn't change in the leader boards.

Option #1 Send request to Support

Option #2 Wait until the temporary restriction is removed and then change your username.

Option #3 Kill your current account and start over.

Option # 4 based on your posts from this username to the forum I don't even see a distinguishable name or other form of personal information that is obvious, like

DavidLewisAndMyPhoneNumberIs8675309

That wouldn't be a good name to use.
