Anyone know how to change your display name on this forum?
« on: February 23, 2012, 05:12:45 PM »
I thought I had done this one other time but now I can't seem to figure it out.  I was thinking of something along the lines of HopSlam Jack.  I'm kidding but I really would like to know.

There is no Modify Profile for me....only Profile > Summary or Forum Profile.  Well I take that back I did find Account Settings but you can't modify your display name.

I couldn't find the Account Settings. I agree it should be in drop down of Modify Profile but nothing to allow profile name change from what I can tell. You could just delete and start over.

It used to be an option everyone could use at will but we had to remove it due to abuse. I will be happy to change it for you if you like. PM me the info and I'll take care of it. We really like to encourage people to use their real name or a variation of it so we can see know we are dealing with.

Interesting, I must have some left over benefits of once being an Admin.  My Profile Menu item has Summary, Account Settings and Forum Profile.  If I just click on that profile menu item, I get my Summary and three menu items above it;  Profile Info, Modify Profile and Actions. Modify Profile gives me several options including Account Settings.

Members of some groups still have rights to modify their profile settings. You're in one of those groups. that option remains unavailable for regular users - The "Disc Golfer" group.

One or two people always seem to abuse the rules and mess things up for everybody else...
