How to change your username on Community

Welcome to Community; it’s great to have you here!

As you may have noticed, the Discourse software that powers our Community defaults to your full name when setting up your profile.

Want to use a different name? No problem! You can change your username to anything you’d like, as long as:

  • It’s not being used by another Community member
  • Doesn’t infringe the Community guidelines
  • is at least three characters long
  • It doesn’t contain any spaces (tip: you can use an underscore _ for a space)

New Community members have three days to change their username on their own. After that, username changes require moderator assistance.

To change your username simply follow these steps:

  • Click your profile icon in the top right-hand corner of your screen
  • Click profile
  • Click preferences
  • Use the edit pencil next to username to make changes
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page to remove your full name, if desired
  • Click Save Changes

If more than three days have passed since you created your account, please contact our friendly moderators here to request a username change.

Thank you for joining the conversation!
