Dear Community members,
Tomorrow, on December 01, you will notice a drop in the overall number of community members, and some user profiles will appear with "Anonymous" username.
That is because, from 12:00 CET, we will start the process of closing all user accounts that haven't migrated from Archicad Talk to the new Graphisoft Community. This action is necessary due to GDPR rules. We have already informed all members via email about the steps they should take to keep their accounts.
All the content will remain on the platform, and all the earlier forum conversations will be complete. The only difference is that usernames of closed accounts will be displayed as anonymous.
No work will be hindered during the execution of this task.
Feel free to ask us if you have any questions!

GDPR, General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 is a regulation in EU law on data protection and privacy in the European Union and the European Economic Area. It also addresses the transfer of personal data outside the EU and EEA areas.
Hope this helps!

with changes like these, any chance i can change my username? or is that permanent?

Choose "My Settings" from your profile picture top right of this forum.
Does it let you change your user name there?
2021-12-01 05:07 AM
nah. I can only change email & Personal Info. not the actual "username" that appears in here.

I looks like I might be able to but I am not 100% confident.
You log in here with your Graphisoft ID which uses your e-mail address.
So I think I can change you user name without affecting anything.
But just to be sure I'll get in touch with admin.

thank you -- please let me know if it's possible.
I'm simply changing it to my nickname.

@Gerry Leonor and @Barry Kelly : changing usernames is at the moment tied to admin and moderator accounts, but yes, we can try to rename your profile, if no one else was faster than you grabbing the new name. 🙂

who do i need to message about this & to tell them the new username i'd like to use?
2021-12-01 09:09 AM
You can message either of us.
Everyone is going to see your user name so you could just reply here if you want and then I will take care of it.
