    Okay I'm planning on posting some assets in the near future, but I have a problem. When I went to create a publisher's account I have to fill out these fields, and I just have a few questions about them.

    Now for the questions;
    1: Can I change my name?
    2: I have no website....
    3: what are those picture boxes for?

    Sorry for the random nooby questions, this is just my first time trying to sell something online. :p

    Thanks for any answers guys!

    That did show me some things, but it didn't show me if you can change your name on a later date, or what to do if you don't have a blog/devsite.

    Sorry, I should have read your question properly. You can change those fields at a later date if you wish.

    Okay thanks, does that mean I can just leave the site field blank or put a twitter account that has something to do with my assets in there?

    Sorry for being a bother. d:

    I'm going through the same thing actually - wondering about the site/url thing, since it's my first asset I don't have any.

    1. You can change your name at a later date, but it's usually not recommended to do so. We did this when we rebranded from "Thinksquirrel Software" to "Thinksquirrel"
    2. A website is required - people need a way to contact you for support. If you're starting out, I would recommend setting up a Zendesk for 1 dollar a month for a one-stop support hub (you'll get a support email out of it too, which is also recommended for publishers to have).
    3. The images show up on your publisher page in the store. You can see an example here.

    Thanks for the info @Thinksquirrel. But, if the url was just to provide a mean for feedback, can't I use an email?
