I want to change my account username, but I see no option other than “delete account”, :(

Is it possible? If not, should I file a feature request?

I doubt that you can change your account name. Not even in Reddit. But you can change your display name or create a new one.

Thats not possible as it would break federation. Is there a reason you can’t use display name?

OK, I see. When you click on a display name, it’ll take you to the user account any ways, doesn’t it? So using a display name doesn’t prevent looking at your username, does it?

I’ll think about what I should do then, whether just using a different display or deleting my account to create a new one (in which case my whole history won’t belong to me anymore).

Thanks !
