When you first create an account on College Confidential, you have to create a username. By default, if you use your Google or Facebook account, your username will include your first and last name. That is not recommended on CC, so here’s how you can change it:
1. Click on your profile circle in the upper right. Click the little person icon.
2. Click on Preferences.
3. Click the little pencil next to your username.
If you don’t see a pencil, it means you are out of the initial 60 day window to change your username. Send a private message to an admin (like me) to request a username change. Be sure to include what you would like it changed to.
4. Enter your new username and click "Change"
I bookmarked it…and will forward to folks. And I’m guessing anyone outside of the time window should just message you? @CC_Mike
That’s right! Outside the window, send me a PM with your new requested username and I’ll be happy to change!
Mike, can you also provide an email address please for users who don’t have enough posts to pm?
If you don’t have enough permission to PM, send an email to email@example.com.
Hey @CC_Mike, I’m trying to get my username changed. Not sure if my mesages are getting through to you, but would love your help! Thanks
We have a backlog because of summer vacation. We’re working down the backlog and should be handling your request soon.
