In case anyone is having problems logging in after changing their username, clear your cookies.

I changed my username and the site logged me out. Every time I tried logging in with my new username it would just refresh the login page. I tried resetting my password a couple times but the same issue. I couldn't contact staff because I couldn't log in to post. Searching the forums didn't seem to show any solution. In the end it was as simple as clearing my cookies, but I just wanted to post this here in case anyone else had the issue and wasn't able to contact anyone here. At least they will be able to search for the solution.

To add to this, it's generally a good idea to clear your cookies regularly. The best practice is to set your browser to clear cookies every time you close the application, but at worst you should have them all deleted on a weekly basis. While this has the effect of logging you out of websites, forcing you to log in every time, it is much more secure and eliminates a lot of risks related to unauthorized access to online accounts and advertisement/marketing trackers. With the "save password" and "autofill" function of modern browsers, there's no reason to keep yourself logged into a website after you leave the page.
