Does anyone know the dimensions of the profile banner? I didn't see a recommended dimension size listed anywhere and I wanted to make sure I get it right when(ever) I make mine.
I believe that it is 1178px x 250px (from source).

The various background/color themes we have are custom styles, but they were all created before this banner feature existed, and I see no overrides for this part of our styles, so that dimension should be it.

In general, when you select an image to use, there is a clip box shown and you can use that to select the portion of the original image to use, so I'm not sure there is a need to create an image with those exact dimensions.

Ah, okay. I was wondering just in case there's a size limit because I've run into things like that, and wanted to make my own banner eventually.

TEMPORARY CHANGE FOR NEW USERNAME REQUESTS
Right now the system will allow you to change your username only once every 30 days. Previously you could change it twice every 30 days. We are working on a fix to hopefully get us back to allowing you to change your username twice every 30 days.
Back in Feb we had to make a temporary change to allow only one username change every 30 days instead of the desired two username changes every 30 days.

I‘m happy to say that I think the issue has been solved, and you should once again be able to change your username twice every 30 days as intended. Please let me know if there are any problems that you encounter. :)

Yay! I'm happy to hear this! I had some trouble with that this year, and, it was pretty difficult to change my name. I would like to know if an attempt is counted as if the member changed its name or just when you change it.

The username change page will always display if you are eligible for another name change.

If you’re not, it will tell you on what date you will be...

Yeah, but I mean if I just atempt it counts or it will just count if I actually changed my name? Because if for example a person wants to change its name, and tries, but it doesn't get accepted, and tries again with another name, and doesn't get accepted again, will it count as if that person changed its name just because it tried? Wasn't the rule meaning that you can actually change you name two times, meaning that your name is accepted two times per month?

I tried a username change, but it got rejected. I was able to change my name right after that.
