No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

TECHIE TIPS: Changing your username or display name
« on: April 14, 2012, 06:24:49 PM »
The username is the one you use to login to the board with. The displayed name is the one which shows alongside your posts. The displayed name and the username are, by default, the same.

If you require a change to your username you will need to ask for this to be done for you and we ask that you have a good reason. That means that the request shouldn't just be frivolous - we don't want to be inundated with frequent requests for changes depending on the state of the moon, condition of the market, closeness to holidays, or other such trivialities.  :)

If a member has a good reason for wanting to change their username or displayed name then just ask for it to be done. It would be helpful if, along with the request, you briefly explain why the change is needed, as that will help expedite things.

Valid reasons would be to synchronise with a business name or an ID elsewhere, or to reflect a member's area of interest, etc.

Hope this helps.
