Trouble changing my name (says my password is wrong)

So, I'm trying to change my user name, I noticed everybody seems to have a different discussion board name and are not using their traditional pen names. I'd like to shorten mine.

Anyways, I went to change it but it says my password is incorrect. Is the membership password and the discussion board password the same? I access discussion through my member page. I don't remember creating a password for the discussions?

You can't change your user name Amber, only an admin can do that, which is why it's probably coming up as wrong password. You can change the name that displays on the profiles. If you go Profile> Modify Profile> Account settings you will find the box to change your display name. You will still need to sign in using your original user name tho, but most of us pick stay signed in forever anyway.

Post back here to let me know if it worked!

Yeah, I'm signed in forever. Okay, so can I request to have my user name shortened to Ancient A. I'm only worried about the googles search engines since my pen name is my discussion board name. I'd rather not have the discussion boards come up every time my pen name is searched.

You can change your display name on your own by going into your profile (click on your user name), then click on "modify profile". The second box down should be Name--changing that will change your display name.

Yes, if you change your display name that should do it. The username will not show up in searches, and I think is only visible to yourself and admins on your profile.

It is very interesting that it says my password is incorrect as I have just now logged out and back-in I using my password? I can't figure why it would say it is wrong. I know I am typing it into the right box as the box above is for "setting" your password. Maybe it is possible that I am not allowed to change this information? It is all. I can think?

You'd like your name shortened to Ancient A? I can try to do that for you. Maybe it's just a glitch with the new board, you should have the ability to do that.

Ok, it's done. Did I get the name right? That's just the display name, your username is the same as it was.
