Username: Your username. You can change your username by clicking the “Change” link next to it. Your username will display next to any posts you make in the forums.

Email Address: Required. You may change this, but note that email addresses cannot be shared among accounts. That is, one email address cannot be registered with multiple accounts. You will need to confirm by email when changing your email address.

Note: Although your email address will not be displayed publicly on, when you comment on any site while logged into your account, the e-mail address will be visible to the site’s owner/administrator.

Primary Blog: Choose which blog you want to be your primary blog. If you only have one blog there will be no dropdown.

Web Address: Not required. The full URL of your main website or blog. Your Public Display Name will link to the URL you have entered here when you leave comments on sites.

Interface Language: Set the primary language of your administrative screens. To set the language of your actual blog, go to your blog’s General Settings.

Fun: It wouldn’t be any fun if we told you what this does. Just try it out for yourself and see what happens.

Instant Post Feedback: Check this option if you want to see instant post feedback when you publish new posts.

Remember: If you make any changes to your Account settings, be sure to click the Save Changes button at the bottom!
