In case you haven't found out already: You can change your public name and password by hitting the "Edit Profile" button on the lower right on every forum page.

When you enter a nickname you need to hit "update" before you can select it as public name from the drop down list below.

When you login the next time your public name will be changed.

User names cannot be changed.

    You can display your nickname as public name. Your user name however cannot be changed.

    I think it has worked! Great looking forum :)

    edit: perhaps not, or maybe I'm doing it wrong.

    Remember to log out and back in if you want your new nickname to show after choosing it as display name :)

    Why is it all caps?

    Edit: Never mind, that's only at the top of the page.

    Edit 2: This time it was on purpose.

    Mine is working - I had to log out and then back in again.
  • JarminxJarminx Posts: 12Kickstarter Beta Backer, Space Dog
    For me, the Show Name did not put my Nickname in the list until I logged out then back in. Any changes made under edit profile seems to correct itself if you log out then back in. Just a little tip :smile:

    Hello ES_8855! Sorry to hear you're encountering difficulties. I just tested the site again on my iPhone 6s and I can see that you can only edit your profile when viewing the 'full site' - not the mobile optimized variant. In order to access 'Full Site' view, tap on the the 3 lines located in the upper-left hand corner of the screen. Once you've done that, if you scroll to the bottom of the page whilst logged in, you should see the option to edit your profile and therefore be able to change your nickname and public name :)

    Is there a way to log in with your nickname/will there be a way?
    Or will i have to log in with this cryptic combination (ES_0815) for ever?

    I can not choose nickname. Only me of default options.

    You may need to log out and then in again for any changes to show in the available options, and the log out and in again for the nickname change to show as well.

    You can change your nickname but not your login name?

    Correct, the User name is set, but you can change your profile nickname and public display forum name
