Yay!!! It worked. It's been a loooooooooooong day. Trying to cook chili for the first time (and I think it came out pretty good for a first attempt) plus was just in a 3 hour DS raid and only downed 1 boss....luckily I won a trinket but still!
I added some information in the OP about how to change your website display name/username:
When you created your account here, you used bob36547 as your username, not realizing that it would follow you around as your display name throughout the website until the end of time. Fear not! Click your name anywhere on the site, and then click the Info tab. Edit the General Information section and change the Username field to whatever you want it to be. All I ask is that you send a private message to Kaisa if you do this, as we track characters online using your website display name and will need to update it there as well.
