  • Under Consideration
Hi,

I was wondering if username changing will be available on the new site? I do believe reading on the old forum that this feature was under consideration. Now that the new site is finally going live, I'd like to know whether or not it will be implemented.

Thanks a lot :)

Could an employee post an update to this? It's been 3 years since this was officially answered. Thank you!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled open letter to last.fm administrators.

years ago i created an account with an embarrassing username (my old name) and this year i finally discovered myself as a trans woman and also changed my social name. however, in my last.fm unfortunately it is the only social one that i keep with my old name as long it hasn't the option to change usernamers.
last.fm has been around for years and hasn't yet given that option, but that exists on all others social networks, regrettable.
if i created another account i would lose all my scrobbles, and i don't want this.
i don't know how you feel about it but for me it is particularly difficult, and i imagine that other people might be going through this as well and want to change their users. so i ask you to provide only the option to change the username, it should not be so difficult and this would have a huge meaning for me.
i already created it here (months ago)and i was banned for supposedly being a "troll" (really?), is this how you treat someone who wants something better and their rights to be fulfilled? i hope you're not really transphobic and do something this time or just reply me instead of banish me. it's just an option.
thank u.

Could an employee announce to us about this case? It's been three years since we received an official response. Thank you!

Any update?? Surely we should be due a progress update four years down the line, given that it is clearly such a requested feature.

As I would really like to change my username for privacy reasons as it has my full name in it and it is not an option for me to make a new account as I don't want to lose nearly 92,000 scrobbles.
