Customizable Display Names

I'd like it if, like Steam, it became possible to display in Galaxy's social features under a different name than the one you log in with. I suspect that a lot of people, not thinking of GOG as a social site, have signed up with different account names than they prefer to use for social purposes. Additionally, some of us (such as myself) just have our preferred names drift over time. Name customizability will solve both of those issues in a single move. Although it might be wise to implement something like a 24-hour block on changing your name again each time you do it, to avoid the sort of multiplayer griefing that happens on Steam with its completely unlimited name-changing.

You can change you username now by mailing support. <br /> <br /> However something like how uplay and steam does it would be great : you still have your account username (fixed) that all your games get tagged to and a separate social username (editable) that gets displayed on your profile to everyone else.

If this is implemented, a toggle should be included to ignore the changeable nicknames and show the username instead. And/or label friends with a custom nickname. Also, I see no need for Blizzard's archaic name-change limits.

I think that the best example is <a href="http://Battle.NET" class="light_un" target="_blank">Battle.NET</a> (old title :)). They allow to use display name that is already used by other person. They mark profile with unique number but other people see only the display name. That is a good idea, because creating profile name becomes harder every year, you just get "this name is already in use" and that really annoys.

If you do this, please don't make with unchangeable legacy username like uplay does. But also it must be limited for to keep order. So "you can change your username once a month" is the right decision for this feature.

Considering I had to make an entirely new account just to change my username, this feature would be a welcome change. They don't need to offer unlimited name changes, just a limited option would be great.

There needs to be this feature, especially since one of my friends made a typo in his username and my username is too boring ad "official" to really be social.

My Steam friends and I would always change our names to go along with different inside jokes. I think this feature would help strengthen the community. The security and personalization bonuses are nice too.

I just like it for added security reasons that your display name doesnt have to be the same as your username when interacting on forums or other social media that includes more than just your friends.

The particular form of griefing I was thinking the 24-hour block would help against was the "set up a bot to spam namechanges quickly enough that it's hard for the admins to ban you" behavior which I've occasionally seen on Team Fortress 2.

I have to disagree with you on the 24-hour block on changing names. Griefers who use youtube/4chan as a platform for griefing would make sure that the person they are griefing are harassed by other people, as people would know who the victim of griefing is looking up his/her name. Changing names on steam, on the fly, is great for deterring any kind of harassment as you would change your name and become anonymous to those who want to harrass you. Getting support to do it for you would take time, especially with GOG becoming more famous everyday! There are symptoms to unlimited amounts of name changes, but the pros outweigh the cons. <br /> <br /> Instead of dealing with multiplayer griefing through a block on name changing (which wont stop the griefing), how about GOG creates a unique ID on every account playing on multiplayer. Kind of like a steam-id only this time for GOG. It would be great for banning people who griefs through multiple ip addresses (VPN), and keeping a record on the griefers. It works on garry's mod (which is known to have griefers). It should work on all GOG games with multiplayer.

I have to agree with Jarppi that allowing name changes too easily is a pain. <br /> <br /> On instant messaging systems, I rely heavily on Pidgin's ability to set my own aliases for people so that, no matter what idiotic thing they're calling themselves this week, I still know who they are without having to recognize their e-mail address.
