Replit web app URL format changed?

I have the impression that replit URL format has changed from [REPLNAME]–[ACCTNAME] to [REPLNAME].[ACCTNAME] ? Is that possible? why did that happen ?

Yes it did change and there was no announcement. But it was the other way around. It was originally <repl name>.<account username> to <repl name>-<account username>


interesting, for me right now if I try to create a flask web app I get but I remember seeing the replname-acct before. do you know when it changed ? it sucks if they did this without warning ppl and giving time
