Is it possible to change my user name?


#1

A couple of years ago, I thought up the hysterically useless name "meguy26." Since then, I've come up with a much better one, "Socratic_Phoenix." This new username is based off of an important part of my life, and I certainly won't be changing it soon. I've migrated my github, minecraft, and even email to this new username, and would like to request a name change. If this is not possible id like to delete this account and create a new one.

Thanks,
Socratic_Phoenix


Core v2.8.1c

You sure can. Just go to Preferences and the first option should be your username with a little pencil icon to change it.


#3

I don't have that option. It must be moderator only.


#4

Yeah... that was what I was afraid of. You'll have to ask someone higher up


#5

If only it were that simple, but as @flibio said, that option is admin-only.


#6

And thus the reason for this thread...
:slight_smile:

The deed is done. Bye-bye meguy26, hello @Socratic_Phoenix


#8

Thank you very much!

I may not meant to have replied here so apologies if so but could I request the same as my name has changed from the above to ProxyNeko almost everywhere else online bar my domain till that expires and a few other sites I've not updated yet :s this would be greatly appreciated if it can be done :slight_smile: @Inscrutable

Systems have changed, I can't do it the same way as above any more. I suspect SpongeAuth needs to be involved ... and it's a bit broken at the moment. What's the current status, @windy ?


#11

All systems green. Only thing not working right now is synchronization of avatars to the forums.

Seems like someone already changed your username @NoxIceCat just log out and back in to see the effect.


#12

Oh? I tried, but it flat-out refused, twice. I have no idea what was happening.


#13

Changing usernames doesn't go through Discourse anymore but it is still possible on SpongeAuth which will then overwrite the username on Discourse next time they log in.


#14

Well it worked so thanks :smiley: I was surprised that it wasn't something i could change thought something might have been broke/disabled till I found this so thanks guys :slight_smile:


#15

Can I get my username changed or am I stuck as I am???


#16

It can be altered by staff intervention using SpongeAuth. If you really need it changed, reply here with your preferred username, or PM a friendly staff member and we’ll do what we can.


#17

My preferred user name is RascallyPanda

Thank you so much :smiley:


#18

Is it possible to have my name changed to “Kepler_”? It’s my Minecraft username, but I wasn’t allowed to end my Sponge username with an underscore.


#19

No. As you’ve just pointed out, a username can’t terminate with an underscore.


#20

Sorry for necroing this post, but I’d like to request a username change too.
Can I have my name changed to Rarcie please?
I thought commenting here would be better than creating a new post for it. Thanks in advance!
