Can I change my username?

Yes, you can! You can change your username in your Account Settings section. Note that you are limited to only 2 changes, so choose wisely! Changes of case (uppercase to lowercase or vice-versa) do not count as a change. In other words, changing from 'paulo' to 'Paulo' will not count as a change.

Once you change your username, all mentions of your previous username will be updated to the new one.

Please note that some pages in the website are cached and until it expires your previous username may still show for a little while, but following the links will still reach your profile page. Also, search engines (eg: Google) may take a while to update their indexes with the changes.
