View Full Version : Nickname change is not working - Solved!

15th Dec 2014, 17:03
I've changed my nickname in account settings, it was successfully updated, then I posted a reply and my old nickname was displayed. Seems it's a forum bug, can it be fixed? I suppose my old nickname will be displayed here again when I submit a new thread here (its doesn't correspond to my nickname from account settings, to nickname which I currently see in the upper right corner of the screen)
EDIT. Yes, I can confirm, it doesn't correspond to the nickname which I see in the upper right corner(
Please fix the bug and let me know when it is fixed

Make sure to contact customer support (https://support.na.square-enix.com/contact.php?id=495&la=1) regarding this issue.

Sure. I did it yesterday and they said unfortunately they don't resolve forum issues (bugs) and they advised me to contact a moderator on forum. So that's why I've described a problem here.
Grimoire, can you please resolve the problem or support was wrong and I should contact them once again?
thank you

This is no bug. Quoting one of our forum admins:

Forum nicknames are locked. Changing your nickname in your SEM account only affects non-forum areas of the website, such as posting a comment on the SE blog.

Grimoire, thank you for clarifying.
Is it possible to change forum user name with your, Moderator help somehow? (my current user name contains my surname, that's why I would like to change it). If it's possible I'll make a request, if not I afraid I will need to delete this one and create a new one using new Join Date..

You will need to contact one of the forum admins concerning this - moderators don't have the necessary privileges.
