    If you tag them, then they should see your message.

    I'll try tagging some for you.

    Here is a very helpful reply from @GLsghost , showing you that they now allow you to do it yourself

    Many thanks!

    Best wishes

  6. TheoGriff - That doesn't work. There is no option to select an alternative name.

    Theo rarely posts on the site now and that post was from a long time ago - some things have changed.

    I'll show you in steps how to change the displayed name - but I don't know if you already have an alternative name stored in your account. If this doesn't resolve your problem then perhaps @TES_Rosaline will be able to help you.

    First click on your avatar on the top right of the screen and select 'Your Profile Page' from the drop down menu.


    Once on your profile page select Login and security.

    Scroll down that page to below all of your personal details to this and select Edit profile:

    On this next page there are two options for the name to be displayed - your real name (the one I have blacked out) and your user name.


    If you have never set a user name other than your real name I don't know how to do change that, but if you have already an alternative then the steps above should work.

    Give it a try and come back for help if you need it from @TES_Rosaline

    @mattpaxman42 Simplest way is to email TES Admin on help@tes.com from the email address you used to set up your TES membership. Tell them your current username appearing onscreen and what you want to change it to.
