Selco and I want everyone to be safe and maintain their privacy while enjoying the forum. PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR REAL NAME AS A USERNAME!!!
If you’ve signed up under your real name, it’s easy to change. Simply go into your profile by clicking your name in the top right-hand corner. Then click Edit. Then type the name you’d like to use in the box and click “Save Changes.” BOOM – you’re done!
November 9, 2018 at 7:21 pm #3830
No worries. This isn’t my real name. 😉
November 9, 2018 at 7:44 pm #3835
🙂 It’s a really great username though!
November 11, 2018 at 8:05 am #4004
If you’re new double check this. I thought I was good then posted something and realized I wasn’t.
November 12, 2018 at 4:25 pm #4210
and that is why ah use a fakename user name……..

If you have a ham radio license it’s not a good idea to post your call sign either.
It is easy to find your real name and address in a database.

Hi! I just logged in for the first time. I see my real name in the upper-right corner where it says “You are logged in as Abraham Lincoln” <span style=”font-size: 80%;”>(sorry, that’s maybe not precisely what it says.)</span> But when I signed up I provided a username which is not my real name. My username is “Amras“. Did I do this right? Is my realname visible, or are you just seeing “Amras” ?
November 30, 2018 at 10:03 am #5557
Hmm. I’m thinking I did it wrong.

Just logged in and changed mine. Thanks for the reminder.

Think I got it right!

Hmm both of interesting and okay regarding on this, I for one have been using it for pretty much quite some time now. Of course just used my initials as for my name part of it.

just trying to see if I did it right

What is it you are trying to do?
August 13, 2019 at 7:44 pm #21536
Trying to see if I changed my name correctly. Not sure why all the other text showed up.
August 14, 2019 at 7:45 am #21539
Well, if your intent was to change your name to Pink Coconut, you have succeeded!
Awesome name too!
Now if we can find a avatar of a pink coconut, you would be all set!
September 11, 2019 at 7:59 am #22422
Did i get it right? 🤔
September 11, 2019 at 8:05 am #22527
I think so!

Hi just signed in for the first time and notice my picture is of me and was wondering if I should change that as well as using another name MOMMA Smith.. Just thought it was weird to have a matching picture and not a matching name. lol. If I need to change it can someone please help me as to how to do so. Thank you MOMMA Smith
November 13, 2019 at 8:27 am #24292
Welcome Momma Smith!
While we do not recommend it, if that is the pic you want to use, by all means!

I have always used a fakename when signing up for things non financial or none of your business. So I hope to continue this.
PS If you think either this or the name under the picture is my real name, I have some ocean beach front property to sell you in Arizona.

Well said Bill!

I think I am good? Just checking!
March 15, 2020 at 8:48 am #26740
I would say you are good!
April 16, 2020 at 11:45 pm #27837
Thanks for the warning, Daisy! I was able to fix this before I started posting.
April 17, 2020 at 8:00 am #27872
Great name, great pic!

Testing for username.
September 6, 2020 at 11:40 am #29838
Take another look at your register page, it’s FUBAR. 😀
October 15, 2020 at 5:41 pm #30038
This is great! Why have I not jumped on board earlier??
Also username test.

Strange to think that I never checked to see if my totally legit username came up. How could I have forgotten that.

Oh gosh, this is so much harder for an elderly brain to figure out how to use than FB!! I respect your decision to archive your social media groups, but I do hope I am able to figure out how to use this! For now, it is terribly confusing 🙁 Maybe it’s tru about old dogs and new tricks.
November 6, 2020 at 11:29 pm #30218
Thank you, now I need a very long tutorial with some hand holding to figure out a profile photo. (I’ll get a kid to show me.)
November 7, 2020 at 10:25 am #30244
Why not use the real name? What should I be afraid of?
November 7, 2020 at 10:53 am #30250
Daisy is big on privacy and feels it best not too.
But if you are so inclined by all means!
November 8, 2020 at 12:00 pm #30323
The page says I’m currently logged in as (my real name), so I’m just posting here to see what my username will show.
November 8, 2020 at 12:33 pm #30324
Unless your parents had a very interesting sense of humor, I would say that is not your real name!
I could be wrong! 🙂
November 10, 2020 at 2:40 pm #30439
I had (have) the same question. When I signed up, it had a section for name (first, last) and one for username. On the main screen it said “Welcome My Name” “You are currently logged in as My Name”. Under the profile, though, it is @noway2 – my username / handle.
In either case, I changed the profile for Name to be the same as my handle so there should be no issue, but I am curious as to which it would have posted as, username or name.

I had a Technical glitch signing up, but I’m here now, and hopefully got the name thing right. 😉
November 10, 2020 at 4:25 pm #30451
Got this username thang working?
November 11, 2020 at 1:01 pm #30510
Well I didn’t use my real name, and now I’m not sure that anyone who knew me on FB (where I was using my real name) will realize that i’m the same person over here. . .
November 11, 2020 at 1:14 pm #30511
Thanks, I will go back and change it. I have a healthy suspicion of using one’s legal name on the internet, I’ve been investigated for jobs and really don’t want my prospective employers to know what I post on the internet or what else I’m interested in besides making lots of money for them or making them look good..
December 28, 2020 at 2:49 pm #31780
Mine just looks real. 🙂
December 28, 2020 at 3:27 pm #31782
Yeah, I was just thinking that too!
