A suggestion to prevent the question "Can I change my name?" from coming up again

I suggest that we make it clear that the username you choose when joining Scratch will be your permanent username. The way I think is best to do so is to make a (?) icon next to the place were the username is typed. I believe pictures would better explain this, so I am going to post a couple pictures here to show my suggestion…

Great idea! I know that it's a duplicate though, I'm just to lazy to find a link.

Not a duplicate of one isn't found; pointless text is pointless.

Sounds awesome! I love to see a reduction of rejected suggestions. Ever wonder why I stopped posting on those? ._.

Yes. That one exactly. I support bth, but would prefer that one, cause some people might think “It's just a bunch of internet saftey stuff.”

I think it should appear when you are typing in the Username box instead of having it be a button.

Myself, I wouldn't click on a “?” icon because that means “help” to me, and I don't need help choosing a username (but really, it's not help: it's important information about username changes)

Ok, I've seen what everyone has been saying, and I decided to make another screenshot with a new look to this message. I studied how the place where you type your password looks when the user has it selected, it looks like this for those of you who aren't sure what I am referring to:



So, my new proposal is another message bubble like the one you just saw, but for the username place. It would look something like this:



So, what do you think about the new image? Any thoughts?

It looks like you have found my super secret siggy text! I sometimes post updates and secrets for my games and projects here, so check back often! Speaking of updates, did you know I am thinking of making a Sans Simulator to celebrate 50 followers? Also, if you type the Konami Code in Pixelybear, you'll unlock cheats instantly! Well, that's all the secrets I have for now!

NOTICE: Remember, this place is secret, and I'd really like to keep it that way, so please don't tell anyone about this. If a kumquat finds out about this place, it's definitely not going to be good for me.

Great idea, and I support because this would help inform new Scratchers about this.

You could also add it to where it says "Choose a Scratch username“, adding ”(it is permanent - cannot be changed later." Or something similar to that.

Support! I always see this everywhere:

pls add a feature to change usernames i would like it very much and it would make it easier
By the way, I'm not saying all new Scratchers are like this, I'm just saying that it's quite common.

It would make it easier on forum posters so they don't have to tell them “It's not possible, read the stickies, no support, etc”

Should I close because of a duplicate or keep it open because mine uses a different way of getting the information to the user?
