When you first log in to the Forum, your posts and comments will be identified by your email address.
It's probably not a good idea to expose your email address in a public forum. Plus it's a lot friendlier to use your name or a nickname. It's very easy to replace email addresses in posts with your name (or nickname):
Right-click on your name (in the upper-right of any DMZ Rats page) and select My Account.
On the left side of the My Account page (under the place for your picture) are Edit and Save buttons. Click Edit.
Type in any name or nickname you wish and then Save it.
Here's a short video of Amber Rogers (our tech support rep) clicking My Account and adding a nickname on our site.
If you have any problem or question, send an email to DMZRats@gmail.com.
