Add infotext about username changes on contact information page

Reported by: sitatara Owned by: sitatara
Priority: trivial Milestone: 1.9
Component: BW Profile Keywords: username


For many members it isn't clear that the username cannot be changed by themselves. They search the "edit my profile" pages to find an option to do this. Sometimes they finally write to the Support Team to change their username and sometimes they just delete their profile just to sign up with another username.

To avoid the profile deletions, please add the following information to the page ("About me" tab):

  • Insert a line above the profile picture: Username: username (not editable)
  • Add the following explanatory text: You cannot change your username yourself. If you have a good reason for a username change please click here (link to
