User Full Name Option...


If your full name is currently being displayed on TG and you would prefer that TG not show that but instead alternatively use your username/gamertag/handle, there is an option in the PROFILE PRIVACY settings.

We continue to work on this feature throughout the site.

Thank you for your patience.

    Hey Jace,

    Has this feature already gone live?

    If so, could you provide a link?

    I can't seem to find it.

    I concur, I have been through the menu twice and I do not have this option. "Privacy" settings?

    Hi All

    The option is under Edit Profile section .

    this fixes it for forum posting to go back to the old way, but still leaves names in the scoreboard.

    Yes, the function is still being worked on as it affects many things site-wide. Also, much like the ESI calculation service, the name option will take some time for the back-end system to go through everything and re-process - so it could be a matter of the service itself needing to spend time doing its thing...

    i dont know how things are coded so this is just speculation but perhaps it could help

    if someone changed their real name, it would be pretty much immeidate right? the changes would flow right through? pretty sure i've seen people change real name before and had it affect scores

    perhaps if you made a third field for your private purposes, and then allowed the current name field to be filled in with the user handle you'd have the name immediately propagate out and still be able to maintain your records.

    Ok so it's being worked on then? Next question, looks like y'all have 'dark mode' on? How do we activate this? As usual I cannot find that option in my settings.... :(

    I can't understand why this is happening. If it's to give some players complete aminonanymity, I get it.
    Otherwise, it's going to end up like it already was.

    What I don't get is why everyone had their "handle/user name" changed AUTOMATICALLY ? If I wanted my real name to be my user name I would have changed it myself.

    Anyway, it's back to normal now.

    It was defaulted to full name automatically because it would leave the leaderboards unchanged, which display full name. Once you choose to use your username instead of full name, the leaderboards will reflect this change.

    considering our usernames where picked when they were just forum names, now that they can be leaderboard names that changes things, so will we be able to change our user names?

    Aah. So it has changed in the leader boards, too. I don't mind. It's no big deal.
    Seems a big effort.

    At some point, yes. It will likely cost a hefty amount of submission points to prevent abuse.

    It is.

    However, this feature helps TG potentially create more comfort for those with concerns in this area.

    The leaderboards do now show the username if someone changed the setting to Show Full Name: No.


    The full names still exist on the Member Activity Rankings, which include the ESI leaderboards that show when you're looking at the scoreboards. I was hoping that could be changed as well so that there is zero instance of my full name on this site except what's protected as part of my verified identity.
