# How do I change my username and include an acute accent?

I would like to change my username, which is currently a number.

The appropriate user name has an accent over the letter "e", specifically an acute accent. What is the correct procedure to accomplish this?

• To change your user name I think you only need to go to your profile in the main page, and in there you'll find an option to edit your profile (it is located to the right of where it says "Registered User"), and there you can change your "Display Name" which I think is what you want. And about the acute accent, my name has an acute accent and I didn't find any trouble with the system, it displays it correctly. Jul 16, 2011 at 0:43
• @ Adrián Barquero: But precisely how does one type in the proposed user name? In your case, it probably was not Adri\'{a}n. LaTeX is all I know! Jul 16, 2011 at 0:58
• You could copy and paste the following: é. Using Windows, I typically have my keyboard set to "US International," which allows easy typing of accented characters. E.g., typing 'e produces é.

• Oh no, I only use my keyboard as usual. I press the button used for accents before I enter the corresponding vowel, and that's it, no Latex involved whatsoever. Isn't that the way in which you put accents when writing not in Latex? Oh and by the way, I suppose you know that there are packages in Latex that let you write accents in the usual way instead of having to write something like "\'{a}". Jul 16, 2011 at 1:03
• @Adrían: "as usual" depends on your locale :) Jul 16, 2011 at 1:53
• In my case I use a keyboard with accent keys. Américo. Jul 16, 2011 at 12:34
