That's an amazing idea. Unfortunately, people have been trying to get WI to change the username policy forever, so I don't think it'll happen. I HATE my username.

Thank-you for all the really great comments and suggestions on this topic, I think that when you search for someone, you should search for their ussername, that cannot be changed, but your "display name" could be right bellow your ussername on posts and threads. And the display name can be changed any time you want. Would anybody from administartion care to consider this idea?

Well, it is a great idea, but I think about my user name.. I was the 88,000th or 8,000 something member of WI and I had a lot of usernames to choose from.. there forth I have a nice username: Emma8432
I probably could have just been Emma, but.. I wasn't thinking..

That's an awesome-ful idea.

I am tired of my username also, and there isn't really a nickname for 'Softball'...

I think it's a good idea, but I actually don't mind my username too much.

Well I kind of like going by my user name. I am worried that the constant changing of names could cause some confusion on the forum.

Again, let me clarify that the display name would be completly optional. If you like your user name, thats fine, if you dont, thats fine again. People would search for you by your user name, that way there is no confussion, however, the display name would be what you would prefer to be called by, or an alternate name, if you, like I am, do not like your user name. It will not take the place of the user name, it would be just what you would like to be called, if you choose to have a display name.

Yeah, that's a little clearer for others - maybe you could quote this in the front post?
I still like the idea of the display name ... it should be like a bit smaller, in "quotation marks," and in italics? So your username will still show and everything, but WI members will know to call you by your display name instead

So in an post, mine would be like:
webkinzluver321
"Catherine"

Just my opinion on where it should go.

Default Re: Display Name-Please read & consider

If you diplayed your user and diplay name then I agree 100%! but I think there would need to be the requirement that you can only change it like once a month or something. Because some people would probably change it all the time. That would probably upset some users. Wonderful idea!

Default Re: Display Name-Please read & consider

I agree that we should have display names (I made a thread similar to this a few days ago)
I would prefer for your display name to be where the UN is now, and then the UN could be below it and a little smaller. My web name is "Star" so it would be cool if that was my display name (:

So it would read like this:

Star

(sheashea123)
Owl City♥

or something like that.
