    Hi,

    unfortunately, I cannot change my username. As I’m just married and took the last name of my wife, I want to update username on wordpress.org, too.

    Instead of changing the name to the new lastname, I’d like to change the name to our company’s name, so change

    matthias-reuter

    to

    straightvisions

    Support in this case is highly appreciated.

    Kind regards,

    Matthias

    Usernames can’t be changed, but username handles shouldn’t matter. It’s the display name that is meant to be the human readable one – which you’ve replaced with your website.

    If it’s a big deal you should discontinue your account and create another.

    thanks for the prompt answer!

    That’s not strictly true, though, is it?

    @username is how people refer to each other around here, not @name

    @sooskriszta, That’s the forum handle to programattically notify people. It’s not there for you to read it, it’s there for the software on WordPress.org.

    Whether you disagree with me you still can’t change your username.
