Part 2: Name your avatar

Naming your avatar is a crucial step in Sansar. Without an Avatar Name and Avatar ID, you are barred from performing certain functions such as purchasing from the Sansar store, participating in the community forums, or submitting a request in our help center.

To create an Avatar Name and Avatar ID:

  1. Log into the Sansar client using your email address and password.
  2. Once you log in, you are prompted to enter a name.
  3. In the Avatar Name field, type the name you want users to know you by. This name does not need to be unique.
  4. As you type a name in the Avatar Name field, the Avatar ID field is populated with a similar (but unique) version of the name you designated. If you wish to choose a different Avatar ID, click the Avatar ID field and type your desired ID. Your Avatar ID must be unique.
  5. Once you are satisfied with your name and ID choices, click the Next button. This creates, binds, and links your Avatar Name and Avatar ID to your account. Take note that once you click the Next button, your name and ID are unchangeable.
