i have a different username from my chat name. If I had the same username, I might be able to join chat without having to enter my password each time.?
Not an emergency, but I would like help having the same username for signin and chat.
Thank you.

When you join the chat room, you have the option of selecting a Nickname. By default, it's your username on the site, but you can change it at the chat login screen. Generally, the chat login screen doesn't actually require a password, so it can be left blank. And even if you get into the chat room and the nickname is still incorrect, you can type this to fix it (when you're IN the chat room):

/nick NewNickGoesHere

Don't forget the / mark in the command.

The only reason that would fail is if your desired (or default) nickname for chat has funny characters in it. Funny characters weren't thought of back in the days when IRC Chat was developed, so they are illegal on chat nicknames. Well, there's another reason it might not work, and that's if the Nickname in the Chat Room is already taken. So, it gets a bit complicated, but try to use the above command in the chat room to get as close to your nickname as you can. I can go into more detail about the technical aspects of all of this, if you like.
