Any way to change my display name in the forums ?

Don't really have much more to add to the question then that.

Hi CrazyCanukk,

Display names can be changed in certain circumstances, usually when a player's real name is used. Unless your parents are creative/mean you may not be eligible for it. However if you want to try anyway, create a ticket asking for it to be changed, and include your reasons and 3 acceptable alternate names.

Thanks, and sorry I can't do more on this through through the forums.

Please explain how this makes the account more secure. You can't.

I don't want you to change my login to something less secure!

I'm not sure what you're getting at discbox. A player might not want their real name used in their displayname for privacy reasons, which is why it would be changed.

I think he is referring to the announced change that you have to use your display name instead your e-mail address in order to login.

This is also what i think the member is referring to above...

personally i think changing the login to my display name makes my account LESS secure since my login name is now known by anyone in the forums and the general public who can read the forums...

I know My password and security key secures it but i think the login change is unnecessary.
