I notice, on these forums, that some people are known only by their nicknames, and others are identified by their real names with the nickname in parenthesis.

If a person wants to change this (e.g., have only the nickname visible, or vice versa) is there a way to do it?

Katherine,

Just go to your Privacy Controls (if you go to your profile, you'll find a link at the top.) There you can select what you want it to show (name, nick, city & state) , nick only, etc. :)

When you're on the settings page, choose the privacy controls link and you can do it there.

Here's the direct link.

If you need to change your name or your nickname, only PBS can do that.  Then you need to contact PBS.  But we can change how much we show.

Thanks, everyone.  I don't need to change my name/nickname; just wanted to know whether I could change the part that's showing.
