I recently changed my GitHub username from
ghbrown according to the instructions, which state that
...github.com/previoususername will return a 404 error.
However, if you visit my account https://github.com/GHBrown via a Google search (“github ghbrown” for example), you can see that this is not the case. For example, visiting my page after just searching “github” then going to my profile gives the expected URL. Remnants of my capitalized username are still plaguing various parts of my account besides the URL. For example, when signing into a Discourse via GitHub, my username is the capitalized version (it should not be).
Perhaps there was some complication because my usernames only differ by capitalization? Any insight and suggestions would be appreciated. I’d like to move fully to the new username.
