I can't decide if it is better to have my real name on show or my cool pretend internet handle.
Depends if you ever want your postings on here to come up when a recruiter looks up your details after you apply for a job in $X years time.

Quick question: I changed my display name last week (talk about timing, huh?) and in my Account Settings it still shows my Username as the old name but my [Display] Name as the new one I want to keep going forwards:

I'm just wondering, after Sept 23rd will the Username (the one I can't edit) change to 'Arkwright99' or will it stay as my original forever? Not a big deal either way as long as my new display name sticks.  :)

I'd better remove the 'Tim' part before it haunts me for life. ;)

What if I obtain a PHd or a knighthood or usurp a throne or some such and my title changes? Do I have to put in an official request with Rebellion?
You may quote me on that.

You are aware The Monarch is a) a butterfly and b) a super villain inspired by said butterfly? Not everything has to do with your odd fantasies.

I think that those societies that give a child a name until they are old enough to chose their own have definitely got it right.  Parents have a lot to answer for at times!

On the 23rd I will lock the Name field and what's in it will be what's shown on the forum

As of the 23rd September we will being removing the ability to change your username / display name, so you have from now until then to choose what you would like to stick with.
No problem.

Out of interest, what's the reason for this? I always find it kind of fun to figure out who someone is.
