@crinrict  I changed it back in July, so it's been quite a while now.

I had this issue too when I changed my name 4 years ago? It took a while for new uploads to finally show the new name ID, but old creations/lot uploads, before the name change, still have my old name ID. I mentioned this several times here on page 2 july 2017, but nothing has changed up to this day. It looks like we either have to live with this or delete the lots and rebuild from scratch which I doubt would be a very good solution. Hopefully one day this issue will be addressed.

This is happening to me too. I had the name I currently have originally, but changed it with a bunch of friends while playing Apex. 

 

Now everything I load to the gallery shows the name I had before, and I changed it back a few days ago. If I look in my own library, it shows my current name under creator. If I look at my gallery uploads, it shows the other name. It's really frustrating that I purposely fixed my name before I started using the gallery, and it's showing the other name.

I tried the cache clear. I wiped the entire game from my PC. Built a tiny house last night, uploaded it... still says the other name. 

How has this been an issue for 3 years?

Re: Origin ID and Gallery Name are not the same

Created a new Origin account for the name I used to have, with hopes that it would "force" my account to fix itself... it didn't fix it.

I've done all of the steps again as well, deleted all of my save files, made new ones, and brand new builds in brand new save files still show my old name.

 

If you search my old name in the gallery, it diverts you to my current one. Builds show my current ID from my library, but in the gallery they show the old one. 

 

Can someone please help? It's so confusing to point people to my gallery and have it look like I either re-posted someone else's work, or that everything I do is under another name.

There isn‘t much you can do but wait until EA/Origin finally decide to fix this over years ongoing issue.

EA ID Won't Change on Gallery

★★★ Apprentice
So, I changed my EA ID before from Paleplant to Honeytraits and everything went well. Then I decided I wanted to change it back to Paleplant but it never changed on the gallery. I tried changing it to Dreamingtrait just so see if it had something to do with the fact I had used Paleplant in the past but it's still Honeytraits. Is there anyway to fix this?

@angelictrait Merged your post with the existing bug report on this.

For some, it fixes itself after a while, for others never.

Don't think there's anything you can do.
