Yes. See the last notice from this article: http://support.envato.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/229/50/how-do-i-change-my-username
Unfortunately, it said that I need to use new referral link, but nothing about existing links. I’m asking because Envato remembers your old username. If you access your profile using old link, you will be automatically redirected to new one. So probably, old referral links have the same behavior.

No. All your previous links changes too.

Hey ichurakov!

Unfortunately once you’ve changed your username, your old referral links won’t work any more. You’ll need to hunt them down as best you can and update the URL to match your new username :grin: .

Let me know if you have any questions! :grin:

If you lose all the links, then this is a big drawback. As far as I remember, you do store the old_username, so what would be the problem to make them working?

After changing your user name, sign up for another account with your previous username. Worked for me :)
