I would like to know how to change my forum username to match my iNaturalist profile. If I need to request a change please update my username to @RangerMyles. More infomation: https://www.inaturalist.org/journal/RangerMyles/51099-username-update Thank you.
Are you not able to do it in Preferences?
- Click on your user menu (upper right-hand corner)
- Click on the person icon, then click on Preferences:
You should be able to change your username in the Account section of your preferencees.
I don’t see the edit on my username. Maybe because your an administrator/staff? Can you change it for me?
Yeah, I don’t see an edit on my username either. It might be set that way to prevent frequent changes and confusion that can go along with that?
I’m not sure. @cthawley do you use iNat to log in to the forum?
Not sure on how I’ve logged in in the past actually. I’ve only had to log in a couple times!
I just logged out and back in “manually” (not using iNat). Still doesn’t show a way to change my username (again, not interested in doing that myself).
God I regret making my user name @TheWoah I wish I could make it matchup
Seems strange you can update your username on iNat itself but not on the forum.
The forum is hosted and uses software by Discourse.org, we didn’t create it. Discourse’s default setting allows a user to change their username up to three days after they create their account, to prevent people from changing their name frequently, which could be confusing and/or disruptive. I agree with that reasoning.
You can always request a username change from @forum_moderators, but we would really like for people here to have the same username as their iNat account, so I wouldn’t want a username to to be changed unless it’s to align it with the person’s iNat username.
Thanks, that’s actually exactly what I’d like. “shanesmicroscope”, if you please =).
You probably already know it is a easier to change your profile pic, at least. I change mine fairly frequently as I’ve gained weight this year (hangs head ).
Yeah I thought about it. I started making a new pfp (profile pic if you dont know what a pfp is)
