It's been a long time since this topic was addressd.  Somehow, somewhen, some people were/are able to have a sensible name on the games leaderboards.  How did they get it?  The "My Account" pages do not addess this particular item.  I can edit my real name and my community forum name, but not my games leaderboard name.

Sister Benedicta,

 

I tried what Frozen posted and it worked.  At least my Username on the edit page is changed.

 

How to edit your name and email, etc: At the upper right, click the down arrow next to the A beside your name. (You must be logged in.) Choose "My Account". Then on the left under the heading Account Settings, is a link to "View and Edit My Account". Click and you can edit your email name, username, password, date of birth and contact information. 

 

In the center is Membership information: "Name" is what will be on your membership card. The arbitrarily assigned Username shows up on the game pages. (Mine hasn't changed there yet, though. It's still pb3166696 for game scores - which is also showing on the My Account Details page.)

 

Blessings,

Polly2017Waco

My legal name is Andrea [removed to protect your privacy and personal identity]. I use it ONLY for legal things and credit cards.
My friends and family never call me by it. I am called "Benedicta" or
".Sister Benedicta". I dislike the custom of calling people by their 1st names, whether you know them or not anyway.
When you get in touch with me, PLEASE if you must use a name at all, address me as "Benedicta", "Sister Benedicta" never Andrea.
Thank you for your attention,
Benedicta, O.S.H.

 p2....,

 

To change your user name, look in the upper right corner see the Hi, real name or P whatever.

Click on the A,

Click on My Account

That will take you to a page where you can edit your online profile, AND CHANGE your name to something else, just remember to SAVE your changes.

 

Frozen

ps - it helps to do this on computer, presently on smartphone so, I'm working from memory.
