What is this strange username I've been assigned?
Good question! When someone accesses the forum for the first time, they'll receive an automatically assigned name, username, and avatar. It's usually a color followed by a random thing like Salmon Wizard or Magenta Orca, to name a few of our favorites. While we love providing anonymity, we encourage you to change it to something that suits you a little better.
To change your name and avatar, click your user icon in the upper right corner and select Edit Profile. The username can be changed under the Account tab on that same page. Despite the prompt, this does not have to be your first and last name—have fun with it!
The name and username are separate, so change both if you’d like!
