Way to change usernames?


#1

I can’t find a single thread about how to update/change a username. I’ve been away for a long while and in that time I’m not going by the same alias. I’ve been going through all my profiles and updating them accordingly… but I can’t figure out how to change it on here. I’ve even tried signing into the main Discourse site that these forums run with. If possible I’d like to change my user from Hush564 to KyoumiOnism. :crossed_fingers:t2:

As far as I know, it is not possible to change your username. :thinking:
At least not as a user - maybe (big maybe!) admins can do it, but Discourse users are not able to.

I think some websites uses a small “grace period” (3 days or something like that) after the creation of your account; but once that has passed, your user name is permanent.

Darn :confused:
I hope that it can be by admins then.
While it’s not a huge deal, I’m a little OCD about all my profiles matching :sweat_smile:

Most of the sites I do frequent allow name changes all the time or after a month has passed from the last change. I suppose I take it for granted when when traversing other sites :laughing:

Your wish has been granted. Sorry for the delay :disappointed_relieved:

Oh, don’t worry about it! I’m just glad it was possible at all. Thank you!!! :heart_eyes: :bowing_woman:t2:

Wait, i can’t change my username myself? Now i feel dumb, though, i suppose i’ll be changing in twitch and such so it still somewhat counts
