Hello,

I think it could be a good idea to allow the change of username whenever we want, but at least once a year. It is useful when you are dealing with several family account and a new member is coming in or out. 

Regards

giffgaff have only recently allowed new members to change their usernames once due to the complexities of linking their giffgaff credential with their community credentials. Given this complexity to allow a change of username annually would not be forthcoming soon.

I support this idea.

@endorphin that'll explain why I don't have that functionality, thank you. I didn't know it was restricted to new members.

@rodericus_int

 

Can you explain to us why this would be a good idea....other than the fact that it is something you would like?

How will it benefit the company?

What is the likely cost to them? - They are, after all, designed as a profit-making centre for Telefonica.

I don't see how changing a username would help with family members accounts

Maybe that's only me but keeping a note of usernames and passwords should be enough

@rodericus_int

i think we don't need it.because on community mostly members know each other by their user name and if you change it every year you need to introduce yourself again.and your community friends are not able to find you or msg you until you did tell them your new user name.

I support the idea of username change but once a year is a bit much given the complexity of linking a members giffgaff account and the community forum.

agree one time option to chnage should be ok, i but a chnage every year would mean that there would be hardly any uder nmes left and thy would be getting longer and longer  to keep them unique
