I believe username changes are impossible due to how federation works.

Changing your user? no. I’m not even sure if the instance hosts can do that for you.

But you can change your display name on the settings tab. I do it often.

Don’t bleieve it is possible, due to how federation works. However, I’m unsure if it would be impossible to implement federated name changes. Something for @nutomic@lemmy.ml or @dessalines@lemmy.ml to answer.

It might be possible, but someone first needs to work on it. For me its far down the list of priorities, considering that you can just make a new account, and put a link to the old account in the bio.

Alright! I was just wondering if it was technically possible, I also agree it is not a priority.

There’s a “display name” field on the account settings (for the Lemmy app called Lemur).

If you cant part with a rich and vibrant history on your account but are desperate about changing username I’d suggest contacting an admin for manual change if you would be willing to make a nice donation to the instance
