Changing the default System account user name


#1

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?


#2

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?


#3

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!
