I went into my profile last night and there is a drop down box for your display name, but the only option in my drop down box is my user name. How can I change the name that I post under to be different than my user name. I know a few fellas on here do this, can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!

I'm new, but on most forums, if you want to change your display/username, the admin must perform that operation.

In your post, click on your name, so it shows your public profile.

There's an option that says "Edit this information" Choose that and there will be an option for displaying you name in the forums.
Hope that helps.

Hmmm, I don't think it will let me edit mine -- maybe because I'm a "New Member" and not a "Member"

Scratch that -- enter your name, then you can use that as your display name. Thanks guys!
