How to change your username

Please please please never ever do this! It's basically like deleting your account but you still have your repls (and they can't run) and a lot of other problems.

NOTE: You can only do this once.
NOTE: This has not been tested by me. I changed my username using the help of a mod.

Are you sure?

[ x ] Yes
[ ] No


Click here

Type in account

Type in change-username

Type in --username

Now, you can either

  • Use shell syntax to type in your username:
  • Use GUI

A much safer and VERY effective way to do this would be by using this link. https://replit.com/~?onboarding=1
