BUG: Can't Change Username and No Warning It Is Public (Big Privacy Issue)

Hello

 

When you make an account you are not warned that your username is made public. Furthermore you can't change this once your account has been made and you can't delete posts. This means that if you use your real name or another online pseudonym you don't want connected you are being put at risk of doxxing.

 

You should change this immediately so that you can modify your username or atleast delete posts.

Hi @xyz98765,

 

This has always been a public forum and we have warnings in our house rules about ensuring you don't post personally identifying information. If you would like us to change your username we can do that though just let us know what you would like it changed to.

 

Thanks, NateH
