How do I edit my MakeUseOf profile?

Eric B September 4, 2013

I don’t want my name shown when I post. I prefer using the username I’ve used since I started using the internet. There is no way I can find to change the username shown or any other information for that matter. I like the old system much better if this is how the new one works. Any advice?

    Hi Eric. There is no option to update your "username" nor will there be. The name is displayed as first name and last initial only for a balance between privacy and personality - but if you wish to comment anonymously, please make a new email based account or use the anonymous form when not logged in.

    That would work except for 2 things. I never set my username to my name and if I were to create a new profile I would have to start over with points and everything.

    We are experiencing a few minor bugs after the switch to this format. Give it a little time and our wonder-tech, James, will have them figured out.
    I'm not sure if you'll be able to change your username once it is fixed, so you might consider creating a new MakeUseOf profile altogether.
