You will be asked to choose Display Name and Username when you want to join a conversation on The Mighty.
A Display Name is how you want to be known to the community. It can be different from your real name. It is often consisted of a first name and potentially last name.
A Username is how the community can reference you in their conversations, similar to Twitter or Instagram. It can only be consisted of letters and numbers. No space or punctuation is allowed.
We reserve the right to remove accounts if the usernames or display names violate the rules of our community policy.
Names will be rejected if they include an email address, URL, anything that can be considered triggering to others, as well as any names that use profanity or deemed inappropriate by our staff.
The accounts can be suspended or the comments for these accounts will be denied or hidden from public view until the username and display name is changed.
