When I created my CR I really didn't think about a username properly and now im stuck with something I can spell properly xD
Now I want to change it haha
Thank you to MakotoKamui for helping figure this thing out :DD I appreciate it!

Well, it's not too difficult to get the username you want.

Cancel your membership, delete your current account, and start over with the username you want. Probably wouldn't take too long. Fastest way would be to contact CR directly (http://www.crunchyroll.com/help?topic=contact) and tell them what you're trying to do and have them cancel your member and delete your account all in one go. That way you can setup your new account as quick as possible.

Your CR Points are meaningless so you're not losing anything there.

It can be done.

I think it should be an option but I understand Crunchyroll saying its more hassle than its worth having to edit profile links etc, which is why I think it'd be nice for the premium members to have an extra exclusive feature to change your username even if limited to something like once a year.

Nuking your account could then be impossible.

I definitely want to change mine.


So every time I want to show an anime to a stranger/co-worker, I couldn't, because this phrase always comes up, "This anime is exclusive for GayAsianBoy"....


It's kind of embarrassing now that I think about it... my name sounds like a porn website username.

It's probably much more complex to change a username than people realize. And besides, it'd be kind of weird to, say, look at my buddy list and suddenly see some stranger's username there, when it's actually someone I know.

If your username bothers you that much, just delete your account and make a new one. Don't want to lose your buddies? Re-add them, or send them a PM explaining the situation. Easy as pie.

That's exactly what I did the first time i made an account on Crunchyroll, though it would be nice to be able to change it again. Ninja_Pancake ... xD I guess the option of a display name could be a solution but, some people might change it so often. It might as well be your status

YES. I thought ElectricRainbow sounded cool four years ago but now looking at it makes me cringe.

We should, but the feature should be similar to how the name change is on Steam, by showing the moderators and members your previous usernames down to the first you have used.

The feature should be limited to Premium users as well to prevent abuse in my opinion.

They should AT LEAST allow you to change it once. Make it like an event they can do it every couple of years.

Yes, for Premium Members only. Because I'd like to shorten Mine just a bit if I had the possible opportunity. Make it happen Crunchyroll!

Yes, as much as I like my username, it's always nice to have the option.

I agree that Premium Members should be allowed this option as an extra benefit. I mean they are paying for Premium service after all.
