Username change didn't take effect in friends list/leaderboard

I changed my username after joining, which I see at the top of my screen, but not in my friends list/leaderboard, which means my friends click on a now-defunct username and can't see my progress.

Every time i change my name in the accounts setting it just resets. I tried logging out and in again. I am saving the changes every time..

After I changed my username, it switched back to the original when I logged back in. Why does it do that?

The username on my original post changes from old to new username and back again when I refresh the screen. There's gotta be a way to fix this bug.

Try logging out and back in.

Edit: What's your username now? I posted this, and then it changed from a username (didn't quite catch it) to Enieledam. Is this what you want?

Enieledam is what I want. It consistently changes back and forth from that to MadeleineM168136. Logging in and out has done nothing!

Have you tried clearing your cache and cookies before logging back in?

Well, from what I see, your username is Enieledam, so that must be good! :)

You go to settings and then change your username. The settings menu should pop up if you click your username in the top right corner
