Apologies for being years late, but what happened to the display name feature? I've been thinking of changing mine perhaps recently, but if I'm not allowed to, I'm fine with Peppdog.

I imagine Joe and/or the mods stopped it because people were taking the mick with it.

It was removed about ?7? months ago, to get your username changed, you have to ask Joe. He'll change it for you.

If I had to guess why they removed the option to change your name, it probably went something like this:

Joe is very cool about that stuff. When I tried to change my login name he was very helpful, even though it was impossible. I ended up creating this new account.

If I do change it, my @ tag will still probably be @SgtPeppersBulldog so you can still call me Peppdog or whatever afterwards.

Maybe he can do Rocky or Bigger Than Jesus or maybe even UKBeatlesfan, not sure if the mods would allow number 2 though, but I kept it up there just in case.

OK, can somebody please explain how I would display my shiny end-of-year awards next to my sig(s)?

Thank you!

Save the illustration that Starr Shine? provided of your awards as a jpg or png, @Von Bontee, and then add to signature.

They broke while Joe was working on the site last week, Special Cup.

He will fix them as soon as he can.

Oh, I figured it was just me since other posters seem to be able to make them currently.  I can't remember if I ever attempted a mention before.  Thanks for the info, R. Nastyjohn-lennon-salute_gif

Some are going through, if people know the @name, but not all. Someone tried @-ing me yesterday using mja6758 and it didn't work. I've got a couple to work, but most of the time I'm not bothering.

Just for future information, problems with the forum should be reported in the Weird things happening with the forum thread.
