    Good evening,
    Would anyone know how to change my profile name please? I seem to have been given one based on an email address.
    I've gone in to my profile but can't see an option to change my display name.
    Thanks in advance,
    Andrew.

    You can’t normally change it. The only way you could change is it if you asked a moderator/administrator. They normally don’t allow name changes unless there are exceptional circumstances. E.g. You put your full name down as your username which could cause privacy issues. If you ask nicely, they may change it for you but the answer is generally no because then their mail would be filled with requests.
    This is pretty much common across all forums on the internet.
