    @Jimkats colored username happen when you have a role with that color attached to your account in that server. Check out the "roles management" article for more info.

    I'm having the same problem as the other people who couldn't change their username. however, i believe it to be that it won't accept the password BECAUSE the name is different. if i do it without changing the name, it works. but once i change it, it locks up.

    ok, maybe this got answered and I just cant find it.... but. What is the #1234 numbers After our usernames, and how are they assigned?

    Thanks y'all!

    @Outlaw They're your DiscordTag, numbers assigned randomly to distinguish you from anyone else who has your username. That's all!

    I get the "you are changing your username too fast. Try again later".

    I made an error when changing my username and need to change it again - but have no idea how long this cooldown lasts.

    "Important note: Username changes are limited to 2 an hour."

    I honestly think that's ridiculous. Another application by the name of Telegram doesn't have this limitation, and what if I made a mistake then hit accept? I'm then told I'm changing my username too fast, and being a person, not a computer, I don't like these limitations.

    @ThyPirateDave It just lasts an hour- you'll be able to change it back quickly, if you haven't already!

     

    @Jreidariux Slimetail Sorry for the inconvenience. You do get 2 per hour, so if you do make a mistake, you can change it right back. Waiting an hour isn't bad, I believe in you. =]

    @Cilantrelle Well come to think of it, I guess that isn't too bad then! I was just a bit miffed the other day. :)

    Name cannot contain @ WHY? Clan name contains @ in name!

    @RustyDomino Is it still not working for you? If it's still not working, could you send in a message to [email protected]?

    @g3ronimo76 Sorry about that! The @ in usernames caused more issues with the the mentions system that we had to remove it from being a possible naming convention!

    This is crap - DISCORD!  Why would you make # not allowed anymore - for Battle.net tags in our names we need to use pound.. please fix.

    @SanitizeR11105 Sorry about that! Since each Discord is made up of the username and # and four numbers, and we also use the # in front of text channel names as well, we changed it from being allowed in the username because it caused more issues with the naming/mentions/channels system that we had to remove it from being a possible naming convention.

    @Lethe Sorry fam! We had to remove blank usernames from being a possible naming convention since it caused issues with the current mentions system!

    I'm having the same problem as several of you "Password incorrect after changing user name."  Is there a solution? Btw, I did change my PW to see if that would remedy the problem...it didn't.

    @Sever Could you send a message [email protected] with screenshots of the error message you're seeing after changing your username and we can help isolate the issue!

    @ellolizard this is Sever. Not sure why but the name change worked this morning. I didn't do anything different...humm. Thanks anyways.

    This is a terrible idea. Let people change nicknames if the discord server is set to let them. Letting people change usernames is terrible.

    @boredguy8 I'm sorry you feel that way, but we'd be more than happy to hear your feedback on why you feel that changing usernames isn't a great idea, and if you have suggestion on changes to the system at https://feedback.discordapp.com/!

    @Delarrow Whew! Glad to hear it's working again for you!

    No, it did not work for me either. I still have the same username. Grrrr, what a joke.

    @Erik3610 If the username change isn't working for you, could you shoot an email over to [email protected] with a gif/video of what happens when you try to change your username, and we can help isolate the issue from there!
