Want to have something other than your username display for your account on the forum? This is possible by changing your display name. A display name is a mask that displays in the online list, as well as in your profile on the forum. Unlike the username when you registered on the forum, your display name can contain spaces, capital letters, and special characters as desired.
To change the display name of your forum account, click on the Profile button found in the top menu bar to access your account profile. Once you are on your profile page, click on the button for Edit Profile. You'll then be taken to the Edit Profile & Settings page; once here, click on the Personal tab. When the Personal tab loads, you'll see the first option on the page for Display Name. Type in the name that you want your account to display as in the box provided and then click the Save Personal Settings button found toward the bottom of the page. When this is completed, you will notice that your profile will be updated to show the name that you updated with, as well as see it displayed in the mini-profile next to all of the posts that you make on the forum.
It is important to note that when you change your display name, the username that you originally registered with for your account will still be the name that you will use to log in to the forum. You will not be able to log in to the forum using your display name.

Mayken: Veda, when you go to your "Profile", there's a button at the top right that says "Edit Profile". Then click on the "Personal" tab (and other tabs) to edit the information. Hope that helps!

Mayken: Hey Adam Beck, how come your photo on that list is bigger than everyone else's?

Adam Beck: Mayken, I don't know, but I wish I could say it's because I'm taller! My son (almost 12) is now nearly as tall as I am. Just yesterday I told him that I have to start growing again!

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for sharing the impressions of your trip to China! I love those duck boats and that doorway! And meeting those kids wanting to speak English with you is so amazing!(I won't enter the giveaway because I'm afraid of winning the chicken claws!)

Amy: Bless!! how cute is that!!! Reminds me of a similar thing that happened with my youngest when she was 18 months: she said the sound right for every animal but the cow. She kept answering "Lola" because of a famous Spanish nursery rhyme about a cow!

Alba: My son caught us by surprise when we said thank you (in English) to a waiter in a Mexican restaurant, and he said "gracias" (thank you) to him too in Spanish, also signing it! He was having a blast and there was some Spanish music in the background.

Adam Beck: Sounds like a wonderful moment, Alba!
