I recently signed up to use your forum. I kept seeing my email listed as public and did not know how to make it private. When I kept checking into my account, I saw a different user name. I must have done this years ago when I bought my old printer.
Please help me:
- how do I change my user name (or delete one of them)
- how do I hide my email address from being public
- is there a way to upload a photo with my name rather than an icon

- I am not sure how you get rid of the other userid - our moderators, if they see your post can maybe help with that.
- Your Public Stats: You are not "showing your private bits".
This is what I see when I open your page:
Your custom icon:
If you stick around, contribute regularly, and become and stay an active part of the HP Forum community, then a while from now you will be granted access to change your icon. For the time being, you might be happy being feline. Smiling.

The honorific next to your name indicates an internal ranking for the HP Support Forum members.
When one first signs up, and for the next several posts, threads, and subjects in which that member is involved, the rankings change relatively quickly. Depending on your level of participation and even the numbers of Kudos you receive, your ranking increases. The most active members might notice a change in rank more frequently, though it does slow and, and at some point, the progression does stop. If it didn't, we might end up as Chancellors or members of the Parliment. Smiling.
So, you are an "Honor Student", at least for the time being.
The ranking is a method of recognition. Ranking is a means of attaching merit to those members who contribute outstanding quality and meet HP's internal guidelines for Excellence.
I hope you find help here. You are encouraged to be an active member - you can ask questions anytime and hopefully we will be able to assist. You can also answser posts from other members and share your own expertise - we all have something to contribute. Community makes our HP forum one of the best on the 'net!

If you would like to change your username, please send me or any of the moderators a private message which what you would like your name changed to and we can assist you with that.
