How do I change username on forums

Hi ,
This is a forum based question .

To be honest I am not happy with the forum name I have and cannot change it - I have looked at heaps of things but can't seem to do it

Also my current username has parts of my surname in it which I am not comfortable with so I really need to change the forum username

    Same here. I put in a request for a name change a while back but never heard anything back on it.
  • Daethz
    Ask for a namechange in your post, actually displaying which name you would like.
    That worked for me anyway.

    Ok @ZOS_PierreL, while you're on the subject...

    When I originally created my account, I used my primary email address which your system is incapable of delivering an email to, even though I get email from everyone else at that address with no trouble.

    Anyway, I created another account (this one) with a different email address so I could purchase the game. I've asked for the original account to be deleted and my username on this account changed to the other one. My ticket has been open for quite some time and I've received no help or a resolution.

    Please look into it for me? 140526-019979

  • Ageless
    Any of the @ZOS people who can rename my account then? I requested it through CS, they told me they sent it to the correct department, and since that time total silence. That was end of April.

    If available, I'd like my nickname to be Ageless, or else Ageless

    Edit: With thanks for the speedy change. :)

  • Night_Watch

    I could not use the name I wanted as the 'filter' would not allow it. I think I understand why the filter would not allow the name but thaught it a bit over the top.

    The name I wanted is made up of two words that form one and refer to a book title, painting title and type of guards person. I have used the name I wanted for many years in other forums and even had it chosen for me from a list of alternates I asked for on another gaming forum.

    The reason, I suspect, the filter would not allow the name I wanted is that the two words put together to make one word (for the name) is fine within itself but if picked apart it contains an unintended profanity - not an intended profanity. By picked apart, I mean that part of the first word is removed and this leaves the profanity. I might add that everyone I have spoken to about this has not seen the profanity until I point it out, I did not see it until it was filtered in a post (but not in user name) and (as mentioned) admins on another board did not see it and assigned me the name from a list of alts. Also, when I noticed the filtered name in another users post, I contacted the admins of the forum in question as I did not want a ban or infraction due to using the name and they assured me I had done no wrong and told me the name remained fine to use as it was quite innocent.

    Let's get something straight before I go on! I do not want to break any naming rules, use deliberate profanity or upset anyone. I just think it's a messed up world where people will see profanity where there is non and certainly non intended or even seen without deliberately trying to manufacture it from an otherwise innocent word or collection of words!

    Any ways! I'm not expecting a name change to the name I wanted but maybe a change to a varient could be arranged.

    The orignal name wanted;

    Take 'Day' from the current name I use and replace it with 'Night'.

    This is not likely to happen! So maybe;

    Take 'Day' from the current name I use and replace it with any of these (if allowed and available):


    I think all are reasonable and definately put a break between the two words and remove any chance of profanity - unintended, manufactured or percieved.

    If no change is allowed or available then I'm happy to keep the name I have.


    Curiosity got the better of me and I searched for the original wanted name. I found it is in use! Strange that when I went to setup my name I was not informed it was in use but that it was unacceptable (filter).

    Oh, well!

    Edit: Thanks for the change. :smiley:
