Is it possible to change your username?
- Click on your avatar in the top right.
- Select your silhouette and name to access your profile.
- On your profile, select the Preferences tab.
- Click the pencil (edit) icon beside your username.
- Save changes.
Hmm. . . Tried that before but there isn’t a pencil next to my username:
Mike and Scott,
I notice that there is a site-wide setting for username changes:
“username change period
The number of days after registration that accounts can change their username (0 to disallow username change).”
If I understand this correctly, all users can modify their usernames for 3 days after initial account creation. If we modify this to 1000 I suspect it would allow Scott to update his username.
I don’t know if there is anything negative in bumping this value up.
Ah, nice find, Jonas! Thank you!
I’ve set it to 1000, and when I log in as Scott now, I can now change his name. I couldn’t do that before.
Oddly, I have a test account (JohnDewey) that I created when I first created the board, and I had the ability to change my username on that account even with the 3-day limit. Not sure why that would be the case, as it’s just a basic user account.
But in any case, issue solved! Thanks again Jonas!
I could see this being an issue if it were to be 1000
60 or even 90 days
Ah, another good find.
I’ve set it to 60 days instead of 1000.
