Well, i finally decided to get YIM after hearing quite a few good comments about it. I seem to have hit a barrier already..how do i change my display name? It currently just displays the Yahoo ID which is just some stupid random thing it made out my name, but its 6 letters long so im happy icon_biggrin.gif I mean, i try what i'd do on MSN, click on your name and then click settings. On Yim it's something like change profile, but that doesn't changing anything on messenger itself, just on your profile!!! I'm sure this probablu sounds like an obvious question but i don't have a clue lol icon_redface.gif

the obvious answer is you cant, you can change it for yourself by right clicking on your name (if you have yourself added on your list) click contact details and then enter your name in the nickname box and click ok / save whatever it says, but that doesn't mean other people see you as that, you cant do that on yim, yet, maybe yahoo might consider it in the future, but if other people done that right clicking on your name, if they had you on your list, if they put you as example, nickname, Gareth (me) when u come online in the little box that pops up saying your online it would say Gareth Is now online...

so bascily its not up to you, its up to whoever has you on thier list, anyone can have you as anyone lol

Thats all i know ;-) dont think you can so far, *sits and waits for next version*

Hrmrmrm, so i have to have my random 6 letter Yahoo ID now as my nick, bah icon_biggrin.gif That's definatly one area that they're lacking behind MSN and ICQ on. (I don't have AIM and can't comment) But surely they only jusy brought this version out...better be in before Version 7, perhaps around 6.5? Ok, i've droned on for enough time now. Thanks anywho Gareth icon_smile.gif

You can go into your account at Yahoo and create another alias. Just go to edit your profile. Then, when you send messages, etc. it will give you the choice of which alias to use.

You can also get to Edit Profiles from Messenger under Messenger>My Profiles. It takes you to the same page as above, but you're already logged in.
