Is there any way to change my handle from strommwold to something else? Or is that it forever?

Clsest thing you can come to is changing your 'persona' right now I'm posting as <a href="mailto:[email protected]" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">[email protected]</a> Bayle, I can switch between any of my characters on this account or use my forum handle (Nuhus). That's about all I know of.

You can get an admin to change it.  they have the ability to do it.

At the top of the forums between the links "Back to home page" and "Private Messages" is the link to "My Profile" where you can go in, add a signature, deal with your avatar, etc. Go there and the second line down is the "Current Persona" that will show if you are using one and also has a link to "switch personas"... When you click that link, it will take you to a listing of all of your characters on that account with your forum name at the top. Just tick the radial below the name you want to use and click "Save Changes" at the bottom. Be warned, this is NOT reliable as you'll note in a thread here. Sometimes you end up posting as your persona, and sometimes you end up posting as your forum name. No idea why it does this and yes, it is annoying.

Hmm..I'm not sure why your characters wouldn't be working for that.  Please keep in mind, we are learning the new forums too!

<p>I'm having the same problem Eyebietie.  Still trying to figure out if it's something on my end or just another weird forum glitch.  If I figure anything out I'll let you know. </p>

Yep, I'm still unable to switch my persona on the boards, as well.

For those of you still having issues switching personas, are you just not seeing the option, or are you changing it and it just isn't being used when you post? It is a known issue that the forum software does not allow you to post as an unguilded character (whether this is intentional or not is unknown). If you are actually able to select a character to post as in your profile and it is not being used when you go to post, that is definitely a bug I would say.

There has been no official confirmation that I have seen with regards to whether this is intentional or not, but it is entirely possible that it is intentional since an unguilded character would be completely anonymous and could have the potential to cause more trouble than a guilded character (though I suspect the moderator's ban stick works just as well on unguilded characters as it does guilded ones!). I prefer to post as my forum handle rather than one of my characters (guilded or not), so I don't really have an opinion either way about how it should be though I guess I could understand why it may be restricted to guilded characters.  I just wish someone would make an official post about it and clear it up for the community. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

I wonder if each post preserves the persona used to post it.
