Possibly a Dumb Question... What's the impact of having forum username changed?

Was considering putting in a request to have my forum username changed.

I used an “expendable” hotmail email to sign-up a few weeks ago, thinking I would be able to pick my own username after getting logged in, as is the case of the main site.

But now I’ve become pretty active on the forums. I’ve done a lot of replies and 1 or 2 new posts since then.

Not familiar with how Discourse works behind the scenes or how FCC has theirs configured.

Does the change apply to my previous posts (especially concerned about @mentions) or will they be under the old username?

Thanks!

The new name will show on your old posts and mentions.
