Yes. Thank you! :slight_smile:

@cpoirier Hi, my email is the same on both accounts, but my username hasn’t been updated. I had underscores on either side of my username (I’m not sure if that’s an allowed format).


#286

@_Void Hey there :slight_smile:

Can you please read post #280, where Chris has replied about the same to someone -


#287

Ok no problem, I just wasn’t sure if it was an issue with the username or how it was formatted. Thanks for clearing that up! @Nablai


#288

@_Void My pleasure :slight_smile: Glad this helps =]


#289

Hi can someone help me figure out why theres a 1 at the end of my username?


#291

@cpoirier Hi there,

As you can tell we’ve got the number 1 besides our user too, can you help us out?


#292

So … Are we going to have nicknames here too or am I stuck with shaded98 as the name people call me by, cause I’d really like that to NOT be the case.


#293

@SWKata: try now


#294

@tifftheawesome1: the email you used here is associated with a different account on Wattpad. I can swap the emails if you like, so the accounts will link the way you want. If you want to do that, send me a PM on the main site from both accounts (so I can be sure they are both yours).


#295

@Ambassadors1: I suspect it is because there is a group here named “Ambassadors”, and Discourse considers group and user names to come from the same set. :frowning:


When will the SYS refresh?
#296

Why don’t you make it so we can put our own names like on wattpad?


#297

Do you mean your display name, instead of your username? The forums currently pull your username from Wattpad the same way they did on the clubs.


#298

That doesn’t make sense tho because I didnt put this picture as my profile picture. Its the wattpad one i use on my wattpad account. So howd it get the picture?


#299

Yeah and I was wondering why we cant just choose our own names to display; it should make this a lot easier.


#300

Your account here and your wattpad account are linked. So whatever your username + profile picture is there, it will be the same here :smile:


#301

Hi there :smiley:
So my username is @/conceal- but this username doesn’t have the dash. I’m not sure if that makes a difference, but I don’t think my accounts are linked, regardless of the username. Both my emails are the same on here and Wattpad. I read on a post that dashes are not shown in the username on Discourse, or something along the lines of that, so could that be the problem? Thank you :slight_smile:


#303

@conceal You’re accounts are linked. Discourse has different rules about acceptable names, though, which is why the difference.


#304

@BornToWrite47: I’ve changed your Wattpad account to use the email you used here. Log in again and it should link the accounts. Let me know when you are done so I can switch the email address back.


#305

Ah I see, thank you for letting me know :grin:
