I see other users have personalized their profile with signatures and personal tags. How can I do that?

Click "Edit Profile" and then find the tab labeled "Profile." Scroll down and you will find signature and tags. If you don't see the personal tag you are looking for, you can create it!

Why are display names restricted to characters to a-z, 0-9 and?


Display names are unique to prevent abuse. For example, if they weren’t unique someone could join, call themselves leosmith, and make malicious posts. We also restricted the characters to a-z, 0-9 and . (this is the same thing facebook does). We did this because many people might not notice the difference if there is a small accent mark over a character or something, so they might think it’s the same person.
