    I've posted in here earlier and realise that my username kinda makes it obvious to anyone from my school who has posted. Can I anonymise a post or change my username?


    PS: If anyone from my school is reading this, and is going to take issue...get a life.

    You're welcome! :)

    An easy way to check if anyone already has the name you would like to use is to type the @ symbol followed by the name (with no space). Autocomplete will show if that name is already taken. You can the delete what you've typed without posting.

    EDIT: Was typing this as you posted. Good luck! :)

    @marlin That will only work for TES users that have actually used community. The gerbils don't necessarily move all the users from TES home servers to the community servers until they start using community. A better way to check if a username is used is to visit http://www.tes.com/member/<type the username you want to check here> if it says 'not found' then the username is available.

    The link should work if you type the name of the member you're looking for where you see <type
