How do you change your username on this site?

Hi, this might be a silly question, but how do you change your user/ profile name? When I created this account it just gave me this name and I couldn’t change it from the get-go. Any help would be appreciated!

Your forum username is tied to your Xbox gamertag. It can be changed once for free on your Xbox.com profile.

Ah ok, didn’t know that! Or that I had an Xbox gamertag even. Thanks for the info!

Edit: Ok that was easy! Thanks! No idea where that other name came from!

Xbox auto assigns a gamertag when you sign in for the first time.

Ok well, what a strange name to assign. I must have not noticed it the first time, or why I needed an Xbox account. I did play some Xbox briefly in 2017. Maybe I made an account then probably. Thanks again!

I just changed mine… testing.

Edit: hmm my forum display name didn’t change…

You need to log out and log back in. It’s what I had to do. Here on the forum I mean.

lol… is that just a reference to my display name or were you following that other thread?

No, a reference to your display name. Since we are in an Age of Empires forum, I thought why not!

Ah ok… yea there was this whole other thread about the Persian unique techs that I was incidentally getting pretty vocal in
