Continuing the discussion from The Society’s Community “How To” Guides:
First, go to your profile ‘preferences’ by clicking on your avatar and selecting the gear icon.
Our Guidelines request that all members include a full name, with a first name or a title, and a surname. The community is a social space and we would like to know who we are talking to and how they would like to be addressed, so we’ve decided to keep this field open so you can choose your preferred salutation - e.g. Rob instead of Robert or Mr McIntosh.
To customise this:
(1) In the ‘Display Name’ box you can enter how you want your name to appear, but we ask that this is a full name with a first name or title and a surname - that way we know how to address you in personal messages
(2) Don’t forget to click ‘Save Changes’ when you are done
