Swap names with other account you own
Some people may have old accounts that they had forgotten about. In my case. I have one without the numbers at the end of the name. I recently was able to log into it and would like to have the ability to swap the name with my current account.
If someone can prove they own both of the accounts, it would be nice for some way to swap them. If I change the name of the account with no numbers, there's no guarantee I'll be able to be the one to snag it whenever it gets freed up and that could be 6+ months.
The suggestion: Add in the ability to swap names between accounts and could be some option on both ends to "approve" the swap before it goes through
It shouldn't be hard to swap usernames between 2 accounts if we own both accounts and are linked to the same email. A lot of us will start streaming with a username we may not like and may find a new one and it makes it impossible to rebrand to a new username if we have to wait 6 months for it to go back into the pool. At the end of the day its as simple as changing a username in a database this is something we all have wanted for years. The 6 months "maybe" when it goes back into the pool will give a chance for other users to take that name from us and I have heard of people waiting 1.5 years and it still not being added to the pool
Pretty much as described. I had someone enquire about this because they had one account with their current on stream name and while looking to find their rebranded name they registered it on a their stream testing account.
Since both account are registered to the same email address it would be nice to "switch" the usernames when the rebrand goes live. As it stands now they are stuck waiting while the name goes back into the name pool and hoping the name is freed up for the "main" account.
(and no one takes it during this time...)
Rebranding can take time and it usually isnt something a broadcaster wants to do in pieces (known as new name on twitch, old name on social media platform x etc) being able to reserve or switch usernames in this manner will allow broadcasters to properly plan and release a rebranding.
