Changing the default System account user name


Each time the Discourse container is rebuilt the System account user name reverts to “system”. Is it possible to change it permanently to something else?


Changing the system username isn’t recommended, it may lead to problems such as site breakage, my question is why do you want to change it?


Since the default System user sends automated messages to other users, I wanted do give it a more friendly name. Should I rather create a new user and list it as “site contact username”?

That’s what the setting is for!
