      Your username is the same as the email address you used to register, and that is what is displayed in the forums to identify you. But what if you don’t want to share your email address with everyone? We are still fixing the profile editor, but in the meantime here is a work-around.

      Go to the bottom of this page, type a reply to this message (it doesn’t matter what you write), and click on “submit”. Now go to the bottom of the page again, find your message, and click on your email address next to the message. You will be taken to a profile page; at the bottom of the menu on the left select “Edit” to go to the profile editor. Now you can enter a nickname, and set that as your display name. Go to the bottom of the page and click on “Update profile” and you’re done.

      I tried this, and it worked. thanks for taking the time to explain. Also, we can provide a print screen as well. However, I think that the process should be simpler for users.

      This is now fixed. If you didn’t choose a nickname when you registered, you can do so now by clicking the “My Account” button at the top of this page, then selecting “Edit” from the menu on the left.
