Hey solyong,

You real name only appears to yourself, on your screen. To all others here in the forums, your user name is shown. There are certain elements that can be seen by AMD employee's, but even that is user controlled via your personal settings. I hope this clears that up for you and anyone else that may also have been wondering this as well.

To view and edit your privacy settings, hover over your profile picture as seen below.

Then select the privacy tab and adjust them to your preference.

I see you as "solyong".

As savagebeastzero​  mentions, check your privacy settings(Preview your profile, "Select One"(options), will show how they appear to others.) .
