How can I avoid that my full name is used when on the forum?
Kajaker

When I participate in the forum, my full name is used. I would prefer another identifier.

We see the name Kajaker.  You can change what name is visible by clicking the drop-down next to your user name at the top of the page and clicking Edit Profile.  Then click the Your Profile tab.  Plug in whatever you want in the First and Last Names and then click Save at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for responding so quickly. I had done what you so nicely

suggested, tested the view of my profile as "everyone", and my name still

showed up. With your reply you put my mind at ease, and you are so

appreciated!

Only you can see your full name. Everyone else sees your nickname. Concerned me at first too until I figured it out. No worries.

If you want to change your screen name/account user name, you'd have to ask the admin_moderator to change it for you.

As the other 2 people had posted, only you can see your full name. When I see your posts, it shows your username only; "Kajaker".

I thought the same as you when I first created my profile. However, if you have it set to "Only you" next to your name, then it is restricted for your eyes only. By default, only you can see your Full name and Email address.
