We have some really exciting news for you! Tech has been working really hard behind the scenes (as per usual!), and we’re now able to do username changes! Hooray!!!
Now a few things about this: First, only one username change per account. We do not have the ability to change your name more than once, so please think long and hard when choosing a new username!
Second, while thinking about that new username, please do not pick anything personally identifying! Personal information in your username does not qualify under the deletion policy, so please choose your name with care.
Lastly, I know this is on your mind, yes, all of your posts and post count will be carried over to your new username. You will not lose it any of your hard work or bee level. When you change your name, all of your posts will change, as will any @ replies directed towards you.
You can make requests for your username change in Support. Just simply create your own support request and let us know what you’d like to change your name to! Please allow up 48 hours for us to change your name, but we’ll try to get to you as quickly as we can 🙂

It’s awesome that we have this option now but won’t it be incredibly confusing?

This makes me so happy. I do not like that my username is my first name!!

Is there any way to see what names are already taken or available? The search bar sort of works but for a simpler name I get a ton of random threads so I have no idea if anyone actually has the name I want.
And this is super awesome by the way 🙂

Fantastic news!! Would it be possible to have a link somewhere of old and new names, so that we can keep track more easily (and lessen any confusion)? Thanks!!

@Eva Peron: That’s my thing. It’s nice that we have the option now but it’s taken me 2 years to become familiar with the regulars. I just think this is going to be incredibly confusing.

I signed up with fb and didn’t know how active I would get on here. I need a name change! I’m going to do a thread with a warning. Others could as well…
