To change your display name, which for you is currently RAMIA, you need to contact one of the Admin: Animal or Blade via a private message.

<snip> how to change the Nickname?
& how to change the user name?

I'm going to assume you are talking about your display name (nickname) and log in name (user name). You can change your log in name. Only admins can change display names. So if you want name everyone can see when you post changed send me a PM. Otherwise if you want to change your log in, you can do that through your profile drop down menu next to your name in the upper right corner.

" Otherwise if you want to change your log in, you can do that through your profile drop down menu next to your name in the upper right corner."

 

do you mean to

"Sign in anonymously" ?

 

Is Display name change affects the user name and opposite from this?

Display name: what you currently use as your member name, with is RAMIA.
User name: the same name that is your display name, which is RAMIA.

If you want to change your user name to something different, contact Animal via private message and tell him you want your user/display name changed. Make sure you tell him what you want the new user name to be.
 

Otherwise if you want to change your log in, you can do that through your profile drop down menu next to your name in the upper right corner.


When signing in, you do so with your display/user name.

Changing the log in name is different than changing the display/user name.
Changing log in name will let you use something totally different to use when logging in. After you sign in, your display/user name will show up in your posts.

Example, my user name is Queen-Evie.
If I wanted to change the name I sign in with to, for example, ABC123XYZ, that can be done. I would use ABC123XYZ in the username field, enter my password and sign in. You would not see ABC123XYZ for my display name-you would still see Queen-Evie.

Changing your log in only name is something you are not able to do. A site admin might be able to do it for you.

Sign in anonymously is simply an option to use if you don't want anyone to know you are currently signed in to Bleeping Computer. Your name will not show up in the users online list at the bottom of the page or in the members online list.

If you sign in anonymously what you will see is your name with an asterisk. The only one who will see that is you.

I was incorrect in my earlier mention of the member being able to change their log in name. Both display name changes and or log in name changes need to be submitted via PM to an Admin such as myself, or Blade as Queen-Evie has stated.
