    Hello everyone. How are you all today? Hope you're all well. @CCadmin_Sorin

    I am aware that it is very rare for someone to get a name change on CC, but I noticed that a lot of people who desire a change due to privacy issues get one. I was a rising freshmen when I created this account and didn't realize how much my username gave my identity away. Now that I am a rising sophomore, I realize that I should change my username, but am aware that you can not change your username and you can not make another account. Is there any solution to changing an username due to privacy issues?

    Sorry if this is a silly or ridiculous question. I just wanted to try. Everyone on here is probably asked this question very, very often, and I really am sorry I am asking something like this again.

    Thank you and have a good day!

    @CCadmin_Sorin hello! i was wondering if you’d be able to help me change my username for privacy reasons?

    @CCadmin_Sorin I understand it is hard to receive a name change, but I was unaware of how my username would actually show on the website, and would like to change it to something that doesn’t include information of my real name. Thank you!
