How do you change username on freeCodeCamp?

I want to change username to amejl172 but don’t know how.

Hi @amejl172

Click your avatar at the top right corner and the icon with preferences hover text. You will be taken to a page where you can edit your username.

Is it impossible to change Username?

To clarify, you are wanting to change your username on the forum to amejl172 correct?

If that is the case, I can go ahead and change that for you. Please reply to confirm if you would like me to do this. :slightly_smiling_face:
