Title: user name vs display name
Post by webmaster on 08/24/07 at 10:06:07
Hey guys. Just a heads up -- there is a difference between usernames (what you write when you log in) and display names (what show on the boards). Make sure you write your username down -- lots of people are having login problems because they don't realize the difference.

Usernames and unique.
Display names are NOT unique. This is because more than one person can be named "Alison" in the world :)

An example is me :)
My username is "admin"
My display name is "webmaster"

I've modded the board a little so that usernames show under display names now (on the side). I hope this helps!
