    Alright... so, I changed my Razer-ID email, but trying to change the actual Razer-ID back to Z4x,
    I got this error message, which makes absolutely no sense to me, especially considering that I had
    exactly this ID before someone changed it Ra2eR for no good reason...


    Can someone explain which of the 3 characters is "invalid" and *why*?
    Even better, if the powers that be would simply change my Razer-ID,
    I'd very much appreciate that.

    Is this why my username is messed up?

    It mysteriously changed to this....

    I was trying it to get F06 as mine as well, but it seems that Razer does not allow 3 letter Razer-IDs. There must be a minimum requirement that must be met for the IDs, I don't know the exact value though.

    That could be a reason, although I would expect them to be smart enough to say that instead of "invalid" *characters* in that case; but, I've had exactly that Razer-ID just a week or two ago. I'm also bummed by the fact that -based on the announcement- these changes would be effective November first, but they chose to mess up my Razer-ID well ahead of time...

    Oh, and just BY THE WAY, this new ID doesn't satisfy the new rules anymore, since I changed my email to match my old ID... Let's hope this dawns on them come November 1st...

    Well, to be honest logging in to zvault should recognize and auto login to insider as well if this is the case.

    Every time I go check via Razer ID or Cortex, my Razer ID changes to a random collection of numbers and letters. Is there no fix for an account like mine from 3+ years ago? This wasn't an issue before the update. I remember there was a thread before about this but I can't find it..

    Have you logged into your RazerID account and changed the name from there yet? Unless something is messed up with your account specifically then doing that ought to change the name for every Razer software. At this time all your nicknames / avatars should be the same across everything Razer.

    I have tried to change the name.. on 2 separate occasions. The changes were accepted, and I didn't check again, assuming all was well. Every so often, I'll pop open Razer Central on my PC, only to see the ID changed again by itself. o_O

    this does not work for me. look at post one of this thread, my ID was set and was changed and nothing I do changes it back. the system seems to be broken.

    https://insider.razerzone.com/index.php?account/external-accounts shows that my Nickname is still Heavyoak, but shows a broken avatar image and the junk ID the system assigned to me.

    Interesting. I see my correct RazerID on that page you linked.. but broken avatar image as well. Checked my RazerID on Razer Central and https://razer-id.razerzone.com, it still shows some random name.

    on razer ID it refused to let me change back to heavyoak, so I put in heav0ak for the time being, but it never passed along to the other parts of razer and cortex still showed the junk id.
