Past usernames should not be held for 6 months
2 months ago, I changed all of my usernames for privacy reasons. Now, I’ve changed every username back with the exception of twitch. Twitch is apparently only allowing you to change to new usernames, and if you want your old one back, you have to wait for SIX MONTHS. This is absolutely insane. This is completely awful for my branding, and I’m sure is for others. Having a unified brand everywhere is so important for establishing an online identity, and requiring half of a year if you want a previous username back is an absolutely ludicrous policy, especially when this policy isn’t communicated when changing your name. You need to seek out this policy if you want to know the name changing process.
Having this 6 months limit is fine for other users not taking your username. But if you had it yourself before, you should be able to pick it again.
This totally needs to be changed
