UPDATE: Some of you have written us asking about the difference between user names, personal domains, and display names. To clarify, your user name and personal domain are both permanent. Your user name is what will be shown across the site and in tags. Your display name, which will appear on your profile page above your icon, can be changed as often as you'd like.
It's time! As we mentioned in our last blog post, we're asking each of you to choose a permanent, unique user name that will also be used for your personal domain name. For example, if you pick the user name “rachel”, you also receive the personal domain “rachel.polyvore.com”.
To get started, log into your account and click on your Profile settings to choose your user name. Here’s what you’ll see:
Select up to 3 names of your choice. To help you out, we suggest names based on your profile information. Remember, your user name must be 4-32 characters long, and can only contain letters a-z, numbers 0-9, and dashes. You can also select a display name that appears on your profile page above your icon. Your display name can be changed as often as you'd like and it can have spaces in it, as well.
Please make sure to choose your user name by August 3rd! If you don’t, we’ll try to create one for you that's close to your existing name. All names will be assigned on August 3rd.
