Help topic How do I change my screen name?

Your screen name is your identity on this site so it should only be changed if you really need to. Changing your screen name can cause you to lose visibility online, as anyone who has bookmarked your profile will need to update their bookmarks and this can take some time.

Your screen name must be unique so as to identify you and you alone among our many thousands of members. As your screen name is part of your unique URL (web address) it can only contain letters, numbers, the underscore character (_) and the dash character (-).

Please note: your screen name is not the same as your username. Your username is the name you use to log in so it can't be changed. Your screen name is the name everybody else sees.

To change your screen name:

  • log in
  • click "My Options" on the main menu
  • select the "Change Screen Name" menu item
  • follow the on-screen instructions
