How do I change my nickname on the community board?

Jump to solution

For what are probably obvious reasons (unless my nickname has been fixed already), I'd like to change my nickname.  Figured I could once I got past the registration, but I can't locate anything in settings that seems to allow me to change it.

 

Any help is appreciated!  This goofy nick wasn't meant for the long term, just to get me past the registration page so I could post my reply to someone else!

Glen already in use so I type this instead.

Unfortunately, you will need to delete your Forum account, then delete your Dell.com account. After you have done this you will need to start over with the name you want to use.

LOL  That's hilarious! 

 

Give me 2 minutes with your DBA and we can fix it together... but that's OK, I'll live with the ironic name.  🙂

As DELL-Jesse L stated on 06-13-2018, there is not a mechanism in place to simply change a Forum username. The Dell.com account is associated to the provided email address and Forum username.
