    I would like to note that if you use the https version of the forums you will have to login using the http version or else it will keep saying that you aren't logged into the forums. Not a big issue but can be quite confusing for https users.

    Question. Are you allowed to change it once every month now?

    So, can we change to a username that ISNT our Minecraft username? Or does it have to be the MC one. If not, would it be allowed to change our MC username to get the forum username, then change our MC username back

    Sorry, just trying to get an idea for the rules

    There are no "rules", all this allows you to do is change your forum username to your minecraft username, if possible. This has always been the case (but manually), and can now be done automatically and instantly.

    Uhh, you do, that's the whole point of this thread... It helps if you read the original post before replying.
