Usernames & Profile Information
What is this strange username I've been assigned?
You know, that’s a good question, Purple Cactus! ;)
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 something random (think Salmon Wizard or Magenta Orca). While we do this to provide anonymity (which we love!), we do encourage you to change it to something that suits you a little better.
To change your username and display name, click your user icon in the upper right corner and select Edit Profile > Account.
Despite the prompt, you do not have to share your first and last name—have fun with it! The name and username are separate, so change both if you’d like!
How do I update my profile image and details?
To change your name and avatar, click your user icon in the upper right corner and select Edit Profile > Account.
You can add any profile photo you’d like (what about your cat, Chuckles?). To make it easy, drag and drop your image onto the page and it will automatically upload.
Here, you can also edit your name, add a tagline, and add other profile information.
