Display name or username on search ?


(I searched the Forum but found no answer)

Guys... One question, I changed the display name, so when people search for me, it's okay to be by display name or it just needs to be username?

Thank you.

Only by user name.  You can't search for someone by Display Name.  That's only a nickname, meant for casual use.  As far as the system is concerned, your user name and UUID are the only real identifiers.  It's sort of like RL: The IRS and the Census know your real name but they can't search for you as "Binky" or whatever your friends call you.
