CHANGE USERNAME FEATURE (?)

I think it could be great if you could change your username

There could be a limit of times that you can change your username
There could be an amount of time you need to wait before having the possibility of changing it again

CHANGE USERNAME FEATURE (?)

Unfortunately, no, the Scratch Team has rejected this suggestion:

7.1 Changing usernames
If a user could change his or her username (or even set a certain “nickname”), this could be very confusing for the Scratch community, especially for those following that user. In addition, this would make moderation of the website more difficult because it would be harder for the Scratch Team to keep an eye on what a user may be doing. It could also be hard on the servers. The Scratch Team has allowed username changes only on very rare occasions, such as if the username contained inappropriate or revealing content. Generally the Scratch Team does not change usernames on request (such as “I do not like my current username anymore”).

However, because of the way that usernames are stored on the server, changing the cases of letters in your username (for example, changing @Za-Chary to @ZA-CHARY) is NOT rejected; you can discuss it on this post.
If you would like to change your username, the closest thing you can do to that would be to make a new account
