ES_1162ES_1162 Kickstarter Beta Backer ES1, Space Dog Posts: 1
so I am a kickstarter backer. I had to reset my password as I found an account had been created for me with my email. Great! but it was done with a generated username. Any way to change our username for an account and display name? Any time I am in edit profile it will not allow me to select the username section to change it.

    The Username is forever bound to your account as it is. I am ES_4709, but it is hidden because I've updated my Nickname. After creating your Nickname, it will appear as an option from the dropdown list for Display name publicly as. Select it.

    After having done this, it is important to click Update at the bottom. The last thing to do is log out of the forums after those changes have been made; when you log back in, your nickname will now display to everyone. This feature is retroactive, so your name in this post will update as well.
