Changing Names on the Forums? Should It Be Discoursed?

Hello, t1_hopscotch!


I want to change my username to LikeaGirlStarlight. Can you please change that to be my forum username?


#2

I don't think we are changing anymore names because if we changed your name, everyone would be requesting a name change, and the discourse notification system might break.


#3

@Kiwicute2016 should I delete this topic?


#4

Oh no. Don't delete it. I think that it will be good for others to see and not ask the same question .:wink:


#5

@Kiwicute2016 tell me what you think :wink:

If it's a super small change, like a number or a letter, I think it would be okay to change, but if it was a large change, like changing from DappleDopple to FlameFox, then it wouldn't be okay to change

@PopTart0219 is it okay if my name could be changed from LavenderLovinNerd to LikeaGirlStarlight, or is that too big
of a change :question:


#7

That's probably too big of a name change, but feel free to change it in Hopscotch :wink:. With @Kiwicute2016, it was a small number, so it wasn't a major name change :slightly_smiling:


#8

I don't think that it matters because the original name is just an object as a whole, for example, it takes your name as a square, and your new name is another object, like a circle, to the system.

So, if you just changed the capitalization, nothing would change except for the capitalization in your name, no old mentions being broken?


#11

It would still change the mentions because "Hi" is different from "hi".


#12

Yes, I see, but there are mentions that have the wrong capitalization of names and it still links.


#13

Let me test something.
@GYsvandregulus, I don't really know about that.


#14

"Name change" from the title seems good but I thing "discourse" part of the title isn't ok.... I thought it was about that discourse changed their name!


#15

I can change it for you :slightly_smiling:


#16

Yeah I did too!


#17

Cool thanks it makes much more sense now!


#18

@Isaacwotwot, have you realized my name change? It is now @Phase_Admin!


#19

Yes I have :smile: :wink:
