How do you change the username or alias on the new Conversation board?

How do you change the username or alias on the new Conversation board?

When Yahoo Finance updated the Message Board to Conversations they changed my username to my real name.  How do I change it back to the username or alias?  Anyone know how?

You should be able to accomplish that by changing your Yahoo nickname. This help article has instructions: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/sln4992.html

Under Personal Info I have no choice for Yahoo nickname. There is only Full Name, Gender, and Birthday.

 

When I post in Conversations under Yahoo Finance it posts my comment under Yahoo Reader instead of my Yahoo username, even though  I am signed in to my account to be able to make posts. This is incredibly frustrating, and there is no way to speak or otherwise directly communicate with a human at Yahoo.

I am still having this problem, unable to post under my Yahoo user account name in Yahoo Finance, can only post as Yahoo Reader, and now OTHERS are posting with my Yahoo Account user name. 

 

Yahoo, what is up????? You cannot help me with this? Why are you here?

 

I got a congratulations and award as a "Hoo Recuit" for complaining that I can't get help, and I still don't get help?? See how out of touch you are??? It only makes your users more angry.

 

I am ready to kill my yahoo account and leave yahoo, and talk about it on social media. Every article on the Yahoo home page is against Trump, 100%. Nothing is 100%, unless you have an agenda. So we know where Yahoo stands. Pathetic.

Wow, you sound like Trump himself. What a baby.
