  2. Setup a (Amazon [Pen] Name) at https://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/edit-cams
  3. Setup a (Amazon Nickname|Forums Username): Login to the Developer Connection Forums (if you were logged in already, please log out and log back in again) with your Amazon.com account credentials: http://aws.amazon.com/forums. It may prompt you to set up a “nickname”. If you don’t yet have one – this is your unique Forum identifier and is known as your “Username” in the forums. For this, use an all lower case format .The Username will always appear in your greeting and in the “Username” field of your profile (publicly visible). Once a Pen Name is created, however, Pen Name will override the Username for the purposes of identifying you with a specific forum post. It is recommended not to use your full name as your forum username. To edit it later go here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/nickname/index.html

Sync your Forums and Amazon profiles: Logout of the developer forums and then re-login for the information to migrate from your Amazon.com profile to the forums.
