Changing Your Chat User Name

By default your initial chat username on joining for the first time will be set to "guest". We do not delay your chatting experience by asking you for a username beforehand, or force you to use a unique chat name, like many chat sites do.

If you would actually like to claim a unique username then you can do so by registering an account, as no one else will be able to use that name while also showing as a verified account holder.


One of the easiest way to change your username while in the chat is via the chat command. Simply type the command name=[YourUserName] and post it into the chat.

Set A new Chat Name
