Since 1997, you’ve been coming to BarnesandNoble.com to discuss everything from Stephen King to writing to Harry Potter. You’ve made our site more than a place to discover your next book: you’ve made it a community. But like all things internet, BN.com is growing and changing. We've said goodbye to our community message boards—but that doesn’t mean we won’t still be a place for adventurous readers to connect and discover.

Now, you can explore the most exciting new titles (and remember the classics) at the Barnes & Noble Book Blog. Check out conversations with authors like Jeff VanderMeer and Gary Shteyngart at the B&N Review, and browse write-ups of the best in literary fiction. Come to our Facebook page to weigh in on what it means to be a book nerd. Browse digital deals on the NOOK blog, tweet about books with us,or self-publish your latest novella with NOOK Press. And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Trouble with forum profile

I wasn't sure where to post about issues with the forum; this looked like the best bet. I apologize if I'm posting in the wrong place.

 

My forum profile keeps displaying my real name - first and last. When I click on my username in a post I've made, it takes me to my forum profile and I can see that my real name is visible. Every time, I go to "My Profile" and from there to "Personal Information," and delete my name. But next time I visit the forum, my name is back again! I really don't want my full name visible to everyone who clicks on my username - and when I look at other people's forum profiles, their real names aren't visible, so there must be some way to keep this from happening. How do I get my name off my profile permanently?

Re: Trouble with forum profile

I just clicked on your name and checked. I can not see your real name at all on any of your pages I can acess.

 

What you see is available to you, and a few higher ups only. Adverage joe just gets luminessence.

Re: Trouble with forum profile

If you ever want to know what other people see when they look at your profile, simply log out, and then look at your profile while logged out.  That's the public view.
