Hello !Friendica Support, quick question regarding the nickname.

Can the #Friendica nickname be changed?

In /help I see:
Nickname

A nickname is used to generate web addresses for many of your personal pages, and is also treated like an email address when establishing communications with others. Due to the way that the nickname is used, it has some limitations. It must contain only US-ASCII text characters and numbers, and must also start with a text character. It also must be unique on this system. This is used in many places to identify your account, and once set it cannot be changed.


So this is still correct, right?

Friendica Support reshared this.

Yes, this is still correct. You can change your display name but not your account/nick name.
