We’re going to see a lot more name changes now that it’s free.
yeah. If it becomes a problem it can be limited to less frequent, ex. once a year or twice a year. For the game osu, there's actually an interesting system where it's $4 to do a name change and every subsequent change doubles in cost (capped at $100). There are people who have legitimately spent over a thousand bucks on name changes for some reason.

I have strongly considered a name change if I decide to link my WCA ID and reveal my name. Well some people here Ive bought and sold stuff from know my name already.

Thanks for the feedback guys, please report any issues or post any other feedback here.

Where does the home screen notification pop up?
Also, my only problem would be the removal of the post toolbars, and possibly the icon next to the notifications with new posts.
I will add the toolbar back, not sure why it went away. As for the popup, it works on Android with Chrome (can someone check?). I noticed my icon on my iPhone changed too. Add the homepage to your homescreen and let me know if it works okay.

Username changes aren't free/open as everyone will then change their names. Have had a bunch of requests already. Username changes are only allowed for Premium Users:

Why do I have the option to change my username, then? I have already seen other non-premium users do it.

Heads up: they've been open since the forum upgrade for non-premium users too. I see this in my account options:
Username: xyzzy [Change]
(I assume it's a configuration glitch of some sort and this isn't intentional.)

but now you can do this
I was looking at this with dark theme and didn't understand the point of it. Then I tried light theme and understood.

Actually I guess it's kind of fun - a way to send secret messages to only those who use dark theme!
