Question :

Username is our log in name. So if we sign out and log in again, do we still use the original sign up username to log in or with the one that's was changed? :think:
You should only be changing the capitalization on your username. :)

Oh, so that's what the option is only for.

I thought it was change at random as it says "This option allows you to change your forum username from '_____' to a different username.
At the bottom of New Username box it says "You can change your username once every 1 day and your remaining username changes : 2"

I just checked on a test account. If you try to change more than the capitalization you get this error:

The Cat Site - Error
You can only change capitalization of your username

I need to change the phrase there to clarify that it's capitalization changes only. I can't imagine what it must be line in a community where everyone gets to change their username everyday... :eek3:

I don't like having my real name in my username. First of all it's dumb, and second of all I don't feel like it's safe. I've shared too much personal information about the area I live in, about my cats and my house, and I don't want my name shared too.

I can totally understand not feeling safe with your real name being used. Exceptions are made occasionally, so try messaging Anne Anne like AbbysMom AbbysMom suggested. You lose nothing for asking, after all ;)
