I could swear there used to be an option for changing one's username (I've done it before). Has this option been removed? Am I just too daft to find where to click? Or is it auto-disabled after you've done it once?

We haven't documented this properly but currently you can change your username once yourself, after that, an admin has to do it for you. This is to prevent abuse.

I would have really appreciated documentation on this, fwiw!

On mobile I can edit the display name field under edit account, but I haven't ever changed my username, so I don't know if it goes unmutable after changing it once.

I suggest messaging the moderators via Intercom. They will probably change your username if you don't do it too often.
