Question about username changing

I know usernames can be changed if it gives the user gender dysphoria, but does any dysphoria count (e.g species dysphoria)?

Question about username changing

From what I can tell, at this time, only gender dysphoria is considered. I don't think species dysphoria would be an acceptable reason, given that this site is only intended to be used by humans (homo sapiens). Are there any other types of dysphoria you had in mind?

Question about username changing

Username are not allowed to be changed but if it is very important then you have to ask Scratch Team through Email while giving the whole reason. Scratch Team does not change the Username it just make a new account and shift all the things to the new account. And it is not sure that the Scratch Team will accept the change of everybody who sends email.

Question about username changing

species dysphoria? im sorry what? never heard of this. /neu /lh

Usernames can only be changed because of dysphoria, be it your deadname, like Luna28, or if they don't reflect your identity in some way, like soccergirl_-.

They can also be changed if they contain personal info, like EllaBridger72, or _-ILiveInGeorgia-_ (lol that last one was kind of a joke).

I meant any; I only used species dysphoria because it was the only other dysphoria I knew.

users may not change their username unless they ask the ST to change it under some circumstances. therefore, usernames can't be changed due to any dissatisfaction unless of private info. don't know why you're bringing dysphoria stereotypes into the conversation, because i don't understand your wording in it.

Question about username changing

Sometimes, in like serious circumstances like genetic mutation probably but its most likely when your account gets hacked. Don't fake your account getting hacked other people might know and you will get your account banned for faking (I don't know I suck at life)

if a username gives a scratcher gender dysphoria, the scratch team will change it. so if a trans boy had the username codergirl and asked the scratch team to change it to coderboy because they're a boy and having their username be codergirl gave them dysphoria, it will get changed. so, op is asking if gender dysphoria is the only dysphoria that applies for this, or if other types do as well.

Where did I bring up stereotypes? All I asked was if any dysphoria can allow for a username change, or only if it's gender dysphoria.

I looked it up and there are other kinds of dysphoria but gender and species are the only two that have to deal with a person's identity. In other words, none of the other kinds would be able to be triggered by a username.
