Username Change

I noticed that @JSer changed his username multiple times, but as far as I know, you can't change your username without having your account deleted then creating another one. @JSer kept all his cycles, repls, posts, comments, and account info. How?

You have to contact Replit ([email protected]) and you will get a special link for changing your username.

@Mosrod I've tried but it just sends me a link to the community forum. What should I do about it?

Here's the message:

This is an old thread, but as it's the top result in Google, here's an update. If you include the keyword username in your email to [email protected], the bots will reply with a link to change your password. (Super convenient actually!)

That's true! How bizarre. You have my upvote, I'd like to know as well.
