Your username is an optional nickname that identifies your account and is attached to all of your contributions on Impaakt.com.
You specify your username when creating an account and subsequently use it (together with your password) to log in to your account.
When creating a username, take into account:
It can be your real name if you so choose, but you should be aware that there could be potential risk outside of Impaakt’s platform.
The software will not allow you to register with a username that is already in use.
There is no requirement that usernames be in English. Contributors are welcome to use usernames that are not spelt using the Latin alphabet.
Your username can be virtually any string of characters (letters and numbers). However, it should be a name that other users will be comfortable with.
Inappropriate username includes usernames that are:
Usernames that impersonate other people.
Usernames that give the impression that the account has permissions which it does not have; e.g. by containing the terms "administrator", "reviewer", "moderator". etc.
Usernames including words such as "impaakt", "impaakter", "impaakting", or similar if they give the incorrect impression that the account may be officially affiliated with Impaakt.
Usernames that are likely to offend other contributors; e.g. by containing profanities or referencing controversies or controversial individuals.
Usernames that contain or imply personal attacks.
Usernames that seem intended to provoke an emotional reaction ("trolling").
Usernames that represent the name of a company, group, institution or product.
Email addresses and URLs that promote a commercial web page and don't simply identify a person.
