  • Vitta
    Hello, Lanna.

    If you can change my forum name to Vitta (or VittaTR in case the first has already been taken.), that would be amazing.

    Thank you in advance!

      Hi TeoDoesSims, I can update forum usernames no problem. I can see that you've had an update before. These updates are intended to be permanent so I would ask you to confirm that you are 100% set on this name. :)

    I'm sorry I have another question. How do I change what email I get notifications to? The preferences section has very few options and I'm very confused about how things work and how to change anything. I can't change my signature either it says I don't have permission. I'm not sure how to do anything. I'm sorry if this is considered spamming.

      That's ok Marsh. ^^

      On email notifications and finding the section:
      1) Select the little cogwheel symbol on the top bar and choose 'Edit Profile'
      2) In your account settings, the second option is titled 'Notification Preferences'. In there will be a list of options you can select to opt in or out off.
      3) If you want email notifications of any of those options, select the 'email' box beside that option
      4) If you want a pop-up notification of them while you're on the forum, the 'pop-up' would need a tick in it.

      You can have both active or none, but we do advise members to opt in to private messages as if a Moderator was to message you, it would be important to be able to receive that if you were without forum access but it's up to you. It's entirely up to your preferences :)

      For signatures, is it possible you were a new users when you tried to update yours? New users have some forum restrictions that unlock once they become a fully fledged forum member and signatures is one of those unlocks. Could you get back to me on this?

    Hello how do I change my avatar? I don't see an option under preferences anywhere. Also how do I post a new topic? I wanted to ask this in the forums but I don't understand how to post a new topic.

      Hello and welcome to the forums... :)

      In order to be able to posts pictures and have an avatar, you first need to become a full member because as of right now you are considered a new member. New members are restricted from starting new threads, posting pictures and links, having an avatar or changing one, sending private messages to other members. In order to become a full member, you will need to have 25 points, 15 posts and an account older than 24 hours.

      For any New members who want to get their post/point count up, the best thing that I would advise you to do is to find threads that may interest you and join in on them or go to the Off Topic section and join in on some of the word/story games over there. The posts made over in the forum section will go towards your post count whereas the posts made on your wall and the Activity Feed doesn't go towards the total post count. The only thing that you will get if you should make any post over on your wall or Activity Feed will be any Insightfuls, Likes or Awesomes as they will go towards your total points count. Hopefully creating your posts on other threads will also increase your points... :)

  • SimsFinest1
    Hi Lanna, I was referred from another member to ask you how I can get my forum name (Hesreal2me) to match my Origin and EA ID name (SimsFinest1). Are you able to help? Thank you!

    • EA_Lanna

      Absolutely, I've gone ahead and popped that new name through for you.
  • Loves2draw1812
    @EA_Lanna
    Hi, sorry to bother you. I was just wondering if I could change my username to Loves2draw1812?
    So it matches my origin account.
    Thanks for your time,

  • BrokenWheels
    Is it okay if you could change my username to BrokenWheels? And I also have to ask...How do you change your avatar on the sims forums?

    • EA_Lanna

      I've popped that name through for you. Yes you can do. If it makes it easier I can remove the current avi and you should see the option to upload a new one in its place?
