User profiles for discord usernames are being updated

Problem description:
You can not change your discord tag to @USERNAME as the profile thinks it has to be USERNAME#0001

Expected behavior:
Allows the user to update their discord tag to @EXAMPLE.NAME

Actual behavior:
Discord username must match username#number

Steps to reproduce:
Profile > Edit > Change Discord Username

Hi @Leialoha, welcome to the community!

Thanks for pointing this out. I’ve pinged some staff and hopefully they can get this fixed soon.

This might be because Discord is moving to a unique username based system. But I’m not sure why’d they’d change that now, it will probably be a while before Discord rolls that out to everybody.

Well yeah but some people have it already so they need to update their account on replit

Just make it so either foo#0000 and @bar is accepted
