    we currently want to implement a forum in our site, but for the moment all 1000+ Users have their "Username" which is the email here... as a Nickname automatically.  -> And we do not want to publish the email-address when someone post... :-)

     So, do someone have an idea how to change the Nickname for all 1000+ Users to for example: "User-?????" where the "?" is a random Number?

    Does someone have a easy way(Expect from going through all users and changing it manually) for this, or maybe an SQL script?

     Thank you for your help.

    You can use our API to achieve this. You can check our documentation article about modifying user profiles for more information.
