How does Gathertown work?
Gathertown is a platform that allows users to connect by "walking" to the appropriate space.
Setting or Changing your Name and Character Style
You set your name in the preview screen when you first enter a Gather Space. The name you enter is tied to the Space. This means you can have a different default name for every Space that you enter. You can always change your name on a Space by Space basis. If you have created an account, you can set a default name that will automatically be used when you enter a new space.
When you first use Gather, you will be asked to enter your name and choose your avatar. You will see this screen again if you need to edit your character.
Whenever you return to Gather or visit other Gather Spaces, you can always change your name by clicking "Edit Character" which will take you to the dialogue box shown above.
You can change the name you set for yourself for the Space by clicking "Edit Character."
