Changing my forum username?

(Douglas William Bacon) #1

Kinda wanna edit it to actually be something sensible…
(Sorry. There wasn’t a forum-support category that I could say. Please move me if there’s a more relevant place. ^^)

How does one go about doing such? Because I can’t do it in the preferences screen.

There’s info in the various threads here IIRC you have to make the change in your SHiFT account? Note that the actual forum username is character-limited. Details should be in the FAQ somewhere (look in the list under the menu icon in the top-right, beside your avatar)


I have just registered here.I have been a member of the Relic forums since 30th Dec 2003 as I am a HW2 modder.I also modded HW1 and HW:C but never released the mods… When I update my username here to my username there I get this message:

[quote]There was a problem updating your profile
This Display Name is already in use[/quote]
yet I can only find a username with maxdamage1??? Where can I please get help in changing it?


Did not where I should post this post.Still finding my way through the forums.Sorry if it is in the wrong thread\section.

IIRC you may need help from a moderator or one of the GBX community reps. I’ve flagged your post to them, so hopefully someone can help you out.

My username I would like to change here as it is at the Relic forums is maxdamage.By the looks of it I can’t seem to send pm yet.Must be because I just joined the forums here.

Thank you

[edit]@VaultHunter101 Thank you. :slight_smile:

If you click on the “Flag” icon on Joe’s post, you should see an option to send a private message at the very top of the resulting dialog. You should also see a “Message” button if you click on his avatar to display his “card”.

Edit: And, you’re welcome!

Bit of a necro… But could somebody change my name? :slightly_smiling:

Would love for the username to be “TheWorldSmith”. Thanks.
