How to change your forum name
« on: August 27, 2014, 07:46:22 PM »
Greetings to all the gang on the Wisconsin board! 

Well, it's only taken a year and a half to "git r dun!" but I've officially had my forum name changed from "ballisticattitudechange" to "Sightwolf"

I was doing some IP training with scuzzy and asked him, and he did it!  Don't ask me exactly how, but it's done.  The original nine mile long forum name remains as a kind of EIN or VIN or whatever in the system for sign-ons for forever, but he assures me that everything else has been shortened and transferred over.

Many thanks to Rusty Red and everyone else for their help in trying to punctuate this thing for me!

See you soon!

Go to "Profile" then "Account Settings" The first line is your account name the second line which you can change is your displayed name. I believe anyone can change it anytime they like?

Of course you don't want to do that or your display name will never develop a recognizable reputation... hmm...
