I’ve started the freeCodeCamp program recently and I’m really liking it so far. I’ve reached the Tribute Page project and realized that when creating my profile I used my nickname (which I use almost universally) instead of my real name.
Considering that freeCodeCamp helps people tremendously in a professional/job-finding environment I was wondering if I can change the name to my real-name.
I figured I can just make a new account and redo the challenges up to this point, but before going ahead with that I thought I should ask here first.
Yes I recently changed my Codepen, Github, and FCC name (via updating/re-linking after changing GitHub). Main thing to consider is links to your stuff will be changed. This forum, however, seems to not allow one to change username.
On a similar note I started fcc and setup a new github account so that all my fcc work would be in that. However now think I would be better to use my original github account instead. So the question is “Can I change the github account that is connected to fcc before I start and commit any code to github?”
I changed my name on GitHub, and it did change my freeCodeCamp name, but my forum name here on fcc remained the same. Any tips on that? It sucks having two different names for freeCodeCamp and forum.freeCodeCamp
