Also related UUID displayed instead of username

There's a bug where my name is messed up, that's besides the point. Please change my name to 'Alex' (no quotes) because it looks bad.

I don't want my name to be stuck like this until August 13th.

    You should stick with it. I think a25bedc5-3d09-41b8-82fb-ea6c353d75ae is a very nice name. – Valorum Jul 20 '16 at 8:45

    Oddly, your gravatar also appears to be broken. – Valorum Jul 20 '16 at 8:47

    What does "a25bedc5-3d09-41b8-82fb-ea6c353d75ae" mean? – Valorum Jul 20 '16 at 11:40

    @Valorum: It is a UUID, a randomly generated identifier. It doesn’t mean anything a priori. – chirlu Jul 20 '16 at 12:34

    I'd laught if a moderator rename you " 'Alex' (no quotes) because it looks bad" – Fabich Jul 20 '16 at 14:01

    I just noticed you'd already posted a question on MSE about this issue. Please include this relevant background information in the future. – Null Jul 20 '16 at 15:17
  • @Null Ok I'll make sure to do that :) – TwentyCharMax Jul 20 '16 at 17:04

Done

Oddly enough, the name field already had 'Alex' in it. I had to change your avatar to the Identicon in order to change your name. You should be able to change your avatar if you want.

Let us know if you have any other problems.

  • Thank you. That name was really annoying – TwentyCharMax Jul 20 '16 at 16:51

A moderator can change your name under exigent circumstances.

Given that your name seems to have been changed to a random string by accident, you would seem to have good reason to get a reset. A list of moderators for our Stack Exchange can be found here. You have sufficient reputation to contact them in chat, or you can wait for them to respond to this question.

  • You have 25k rep, right? I thought users at 25K had mod tools – TwentyCharMax Jul 20 '16 at 7:12

    @a25bedc5-3d09-41b8-82fb-ea6c353d75ae - We have significant privileges, but not as many as "diamond moderators." For example, I can cast close and delete votes, and edit posts and tag wikis freely. – Adamant Jul 20 '16 at 7:12

    @a25bedc5-3d09-41b8-82fb-ea6c353d75ae - Well, you may not want to accept this in any case. A moderator will probably post an answer after they have decided what to do about your situation. – Adamant Jul 20 '16 at 7:43
