    Display Name Change

    Just a quick question - is it possible to amend my display name or would I have to register a new account?

    We're about to do some e-safety stuff with the students, and one of the things we say is to use aliases not real names on forums - perhaps I should lead by example!

    If an admin sees this (or you PM one) they will be able to do it for you. I had mine done a while back

    Yes, it's possible. The unnecessarily-long "FN-GreaterManchester" was truncated to FN-GM a while ago

    I did think it was possible, but I can't see how. Had a look in the User CP but couldn't see it (could change pretty much everything else though).

    Sorry, should have mentioned it's not user-doable - mb2k01 is correct in saying it's down to an admin.

    I thought if I stole your identity it would give you something else to talk about at your s-safety talks. A practical example if you will. If you could just e-mail me (in plain text if possible), all of your address details, financial information, mothers maiden name, first pet, etc - it would make my job so much easier
