The Nickname in your profile determines what name will be displayed publically on AtomicRPG.com. This can be selected in your profile as the Display Name. Some things that may show this public name are forum posts and content creation references.
It is a good idea to use a Nickname for your Display Name on your account for a couple reasons.
- To increase security for your account.
- In case you used an email address for your login name. (Bots scan the internet for emails to send spam to.) This can help avoid unwanted emails.
- If the name you wanted for your account was taken. This way you can display the name you want and still have a unique login username.
When an account is created the Username is used as the Nickname. However, they do not have to be the same. Simply go to your Profile. This is found on the right side on the screen in the widget that allows you to access your account. Or it can be located in the menu under Atomic RPG System account.
Or click here to go directly to your profile: My Profile
Once in your profile simply change your account Nickname, change your Display Name to the Nickname, and save the changes.
Important Note: Use your Username to log in to AtomicRPG.com. Not your Nickname.
