Hi, I’m new here with just one approved submission so far and a couple of pending ones but I’d like to change my username a little and was wondering will this affect my currently approved file or my submissions in anyway?

I don’t think so

no, your items stay in your portfolio. All you need to change are your referral links (if you have placed any). The referral link with your old name won’t work anymore.

Everything else, items, followers, stay the same and are unaffected from this name change.

Nope, it won’t. There are many authors in themeforest (including us) who change the initial user name for rebranding purposes and there are no negative consequences from my personal experience.

I don’t think the change will effect to the referral links.

Example;

themeforest.net/item/your-item-name/item-id-number

You can change “your-item-name” to anything, that’s not important, the link is handled through the item id number, not item name.

EDIT: Oops, misunderstood the question. The guys above are right; the only thing that’ll break are referral links. Not the links to your items, but any links that include ?ref=yourusername and would normally earn you affiliate bonusses.

Yes, they tend to double after each change.
