Issue with user generated Usernames in team join link

Bug description:
Error when members creating account names in a Replit team

Expected vs Current Behavior:
They should be able to change from the default username to something they create, but the default doesn’t change in the new account

Steps to reproduce:
Use a join code from a Replit team and create an account with a username that is not the default

Replit Profile:

Hi @DrBarclay ! Yes, this is a known issue with Teams Edu. For now, users who join using the Privacy Mode link will have to keep their randomly generated username for the initial login. Privacy Mode also generates an associated email address using that original username that they will likely have to use to login.

As an aside, Privacy Mode is intended to be anonymous and does have limitations on the account. If we use a team without Privacy Mode enabled, students will be invited to create their own Replit account with an email of their choice and without the Privacy Mode limitations.
