  • Handles and Names on Scooploop

    Scooploop has granted an exceptional request to change the handle for user to @Socrates. Requests from other users in future will be declined.

    On sign-up, a new user is asked to enter their name, and also to select a 'handle' (shown as ), a personal ID which is unique to them.

    A user may change their display name if they wish; however, they cannot change their handle. The handle is the name that absolutely and uniquely identifies a user through their time on Scooploop and ensures that, whatever the display name, other users will always be able to identify the user.
