Arrow Change Farm Name, Forum Name, Avatar Name/Gender/Appearance

Changing your Avatar Name

You can change your name by clicking on the 'Account' tab at the top of your farm screen. Just enter your new name, and click on Save. Next time you enter the game, your new name will be active. Your name will automatically be updated on all of your friends' buddy lists.

Avatar names are not unique to any one person and quite a number of people can have the same name for their Avatars.

Changing your Avatar's Gender

You can change your Avatar's gender by clicking on the 'Account' tab at the top of your farm screen. Then click on the preferences tab and choose your gender. Next time you enter the game, your new gender will be active.

Changing your Avatar's Appearance

To change your Avatar's appearance, click on the avatar and a menu will appear to change appearance.

Changing your Farm Name

You change your Farm name by clicking on the plaque in the upper right-hand side of your farm screen (shown as circled area below).

If you hover your mouse over it a notification will pop up that says: Click to Edit Farm Name


Changing your Forum Name

Forum names can be changed by a Forum Administrator only. Requests for name changes will be taken under advisement. Send a PM to Taz D, marymarcel or Tiger after insuring the new name is not already in use by searching the member list found under the communities tab at the top of the screen. Once it is received, if approved, the change will take place immediately. You will need to use the new name the next time you log on.

Default How to get profile picture to show on neighbor lineup

How do I get my profile picture to show up in the neighbor lineup instead of a blank silhouette? The avatar is there, but no profile picture above it. Thanks.

Your profile picture is already there, but not for you to see. It won't show for you but your neighbors will see it.

Default Status message in marketplace

I want to change my status message in the marketplace. I upgraded to the 8x combine, and have tried many times to change my status to reflect that. It also doesn't change it completely. It reads the way I want it to under my avatar (8x comb), but if I type something in the message box, it still says the 6x message by my name. Obviously, I know how to change it, but it resets to 6x every time I log out. It has been this way for months. I've cleared the cache, ''saved'' it, etc. What is going on?

Did you change your name in the Account tab? That is the only way I know to change it. Make sure you delete all the characters out of the Name box and then type in the new one you want. Then click Change at the bottom of that screen.
The status message you put in when in the market is temporary and does not permanently change.

That did it, Taz D. I was changing it in the market instead of the account tab. I didn't realize it mattered WHERE you made the change. Thanks so much!

Default Change Forum User Name

Since my Forum User Name has my old email address included, is there any way to change my User Name on the Forum without losing my data?
