• Most people probably don't realise this, but this forum has had two editors for a number of years. One is the xenForo default editor, and the other is a custom editor I made years back I called BBCEd.

    All the settings for which editor you use was lost during the upgrade. You can find the setting under Account Settings > Preferences > Editor.

How to change my name?

I've searched for this thread and all I got was how to change an avatar (which I still can't do by the way), how can I change my name? It's not anywhere in settings....

On the changing avatar front it turns out that the "change avatar" permission wasn't switched on for new users. Should be fine now.

I learned the only way to change my name is to ask an admin, so do I have to like PM you or something? Or can I just say what I want my name changed to here

I'd like to just change this to "Alpha Hedge" (or "Alpha_Hedge" if there needs to be an underscore)

Done. Keep in mind that you will need to log in with that name from now on.

Got it. Although I login with my email, so do I log in with this name instead of my email?

Nah, only if you log in with your username should anything change for you.

I'd like my name changed to CeruleanReaper. IndieKid9k sounds beyond childish to me nowadays.

Once again I need confirmation of your understanding that this will change the username you log in with as well.
