User Username Changes
Description Allows users to change their usernames without staff assistance.
Author(s) AnimatedCritter
Status stable
Github extension/user-username-changes
LK Version 2.1.0
Contains a Migration

This extension allows users to change their usernames. It also introduces a username log to keep track of all name changes, as well as a username cooldown. Staff can bypass the cooldown via the user index panel (/admin/users), if need-be.


Pull and merge the branch, making sure to address any merge issues.

Afterwards, run the following commands in your console:

php artisan migrate

php artisan add-site-settings

php artisan update-extension-tracker



  • Determines how many days a user must wait before being able to change their username again.
  • By default, this is set to 30 days.
  • To set no cooldown, change this value to 0.


I am no longer on Discord. Instead, please contact me through CritterCodes (https://crittercodes.neocities.org/). Thank you!

Potential Issues & Solutions:

Attempt to read property "updated_at" on null when changing a username for the first time.

  • If you last pulled the branch before May 24th, you need to repull the branch. Afterwards, push the updates and the issue should be resolved!
