New Unique UserName email?

So I received this email today… What’s wrong with my RVR2 username? :face_with_diagonal_mouth:

We’re asking everyone to choose a unique username instead of using discriminators in their username (username#0000). Starting March 4, 2024, Discord will begin assigning usernames to users who have not chosen one themselves. You are receiving this email because you have not chosen a new username.

This is a notice that if you do not update your username by March 4, 2024, Discord will assign a new, unique username to your account. We will try to assign you a unique username that is similar to your current username.

You can update your username now by following these instructions:

On Desktop/Browser

  1. Select the cog wheel in the bottom left to open User Settings
  2. Click Get Started

On Mobile

  1. Open the You tab by tapping your profile in the bottom right of the screen
  2. Tap Get Started

You can always change your username later in your User Settings. Learn more about our recent changes to usernames in our support article.

Thank you,

Discord

Sounds like a phishing email.

No, I think it’s real, because I got one from another community.
I think it’s because the username ends with a number.

Choose RVR2 Versus Gamera. That’ll learn 'em.

This is from DisCORD not Discourse.

They changed their username policy last summer and asked everyone to update their name to something that wasn’t the assigned number they were given when they signed up.

No worries

Anyone know which came first DisCORD or DisCOURSE because the second one had to know there would be massive confusion.

Discourse, by about 9 months: August 2014 initial release vs May 2015.

Yeah, this is a real email – I didn’t click on anything in it, but I went to Discord.com and logged in and saw the same notice. Apparently my name there was Pearls_Mint#[number] and I just had to update it to Pearls_Mint and that was all it took.
