    Hi,

    I just saw that my byline thingy under my name is now public safety diver. I'm not. I didn't make this change and don't recall signing up to this group (if indeed it is closed), but might have signed up to lurk. Last I recall, my byline was DIR Practitioner (associated with one of the forums I signed up for). Don't see this byline listed under my personal details/preferences. Any thoughts on how this was changed without me knowing and how I can change back?

    I have no idea why it changed but I removed it from your profile so you're back to DIR Practitioner.

    You should be able to access PSD w/o joining if that was the trigger. Since it's a public group, it shouldn't have.

    Just curious.

    Why is my byline 'Angle Fish'.
    I'm not a angel fish. Is there a way to change this, and how does this whole byline thing work.

    Feel free to point me somewhere, if this has already been discussed or is documented. I did search Angel Fish.

    You can change that by joining a sub forum (group) . The various fish are automatically generated based on post count number.

    Or if you donate to the site you get the power to type a custom line there.

    If my writeup up is unclear I'm certain someone will help guide you through the process. Feel free to ask here.

    Perfect, thanks for the response. It turns out I am a Angel Fish - by definition.

    I think I must done the search incorrectly somehow the first time. Sorry to need you to point out the obvious and easy to find.

    Thanks @northernone and @The Chairman

    No need to apologize! You're asking a question dozens others want to know the answer to but are afraid to ask. "Why am I a Garibaldi?" is the most common question sent to Support@ScubaBoard.com. I am open to any suggestions on how to make it even more obvious and easy to find. I am also open to suggestions about any topics or clarifications that I should include in the user's guide. Any feedback is a bonus and much appreciated.

    I was fortunate to get the manufacturers tag line. Otherwise, I might have been a sea slug, tunicate or some other invertebrate.
