How do I change my username

How do I change my username & what affects will this have on the forum.
I am still making it and have only created categories, sub categories, edited descriptions, and about forum topics.

If site settings allow it, you can change it at https://meta.discourse.org/my/preferences/account. As long as you’ve not been @mentioned in posts, there are no complications.

And, I believe, clicks on links with u=oldusername won’t be counted for your new username.

what do you mean by that?

There’s a button next to every post to get a sharable link. These links end in something like ?u=notriddle, which causes Discourse to count the links as “shared by me” and potentially grant some built-in badges.

It won’t affect anything at that point. You haven’t been quoted or participated in any discussions.
