a way to change usernames

have a button in account settings where you can create a new account, and your projects are automatically sent to it. also the new account becomes a New Scratcher, since apparently skipping ranks on an alt is rejected.

Generation 1. Copy and paste this into your siggy, then increase the generation by 1. Then say you continued the generation on @GullumIncComicz profile and the number of your generation. If your generation was already commented, then remove this from your siggy.

a way to change usernames

You can download your projects and then upload them to a different account, as for giving your status to another account. Well, that's already rejected. This is the Scratch teams reason for rejecting this:

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.

I made made a game called "The True Ninja". It may sound like a rip-off to @Will_Wams the ninja series but I made it quite a bit different. The second game is out is now out and in my opinion, is much better than the first.

I am willing to help as long as it is in my capability to do so. (I think I am a decent programmer but not the best artist).

It's not changing usernames, its creating an alt more easily.

Then maybe change the title of the topic. Still, you can't just skip the new scratcher status.

That's why the OP doesn't say that.

Anyways, it's annoying to create a whole new account and lose all your projects for a username change

If you just want your projects back, you'll have to download all of your projects from your old account and reupload them on your new account. I'm pretty sure that the Scratch Team have said that with a post about making new accounts to “change your username”.

That doesn't transfer the loves and stuff of the project, which is what the suggestion wants.

Hi, I'm ResExsention, a New Scratcher who refuses to press that button! I hope we get to know each other and become friends!

If you see "[DATA EXPUNGED]", you'll know it was deleted by me. It's a lot easier.
