What’s Your Name?

It’s that time in the release cycle, folks… credits! Here is a recycle of the post telling you to update your name for the credits screen. 🙂

Did you have at least one props on a commit in 3.4? If so, you’re listed on the Credits screen in the WP dashboard.* In the listing, your name links to your wordpress.org profile. Some people are shown as their real names, while others show as their trac/.org usernames. Now, if you’re all about the alias and you go by your trac/irc handle everywhere and want to keep it that way, that’s fine. But, if you would like people (curious users, colleagues, potential clients or employers, etc) to see your real name, all you have to do is add it to your profile.

Note 1: You may say, “But my username is my name, just without spaces and capital letters/a last name.” You’re still on the list, because it’s in username format.

Note 2: You may say, “Yes, I would really like people who google my real name to find my WP profile, but within the community, everyone knows me as my username. Quandry!” Not really. Take a page from some of the other people in your situation and put your username in parenthesis after your last name. In the coming year we’ll be making improvements to the profiles section, and having an optional way to display your username will hopefully be added.

Below is a list of everyone is the 3.4 credits that is listed by username rather than regular name. If you see your username on this list, click on it to go to your wordpress.org profile. Log in. Edit links will appear. Click the one in the top section that controls name and description, put your real name in the Name field, and save it. Voil , your real name will show up on the credits page.

Howdy 3.2 contributors The new credits page in…

Howdy 3.2 contributors: The new credits page in 3.2 (#17384) now pulls your name from your WP.org profile. So if you want your full name to show up, go update it.

Mine is here. When you’re logged in, the Edit link on your own profile and the subsequent name field are both rather obvious.

Potential contributors: This enough incentive to contribute to 3.2? 🙂 Go grab the beta.

(Fine print: Server cache updates every 12 hours. Core cache updates once a week, so you’ll need to flush the transient to see it on your own install.)
