Um, Why the Heck is my Last Name being displayed, as opposed to my Screen Name, and why can I not fix this?

I think the above describes my question well enough. In my profile, I did list a Screen Name.

Also, I am quite sure, in the past, I was listed as Brian of SummaeStudios. This somehow changed without my knowledge or consent.

Hi,

It is only you that see your actual name because you are logged in. We see your name as Brian of SummaeStudios. It is a quirk of this Jive software.

If you want to see what we see, then log out and then have a look at the thread.

Thank you @Little_Pale_Face for the quick, succinct, correct reply. At some point in the past, it did not work this way, so that is what caused my confusion.

Changed about 12 months ago I believe.

Long discussion on it here:

Real name instead of Screen name displayed

Thanks for the info @John_Waller. As a visual artist, I am perceptive enough that it only took me one year to notice.
