GitHub's noreply email address (given to you if you choose to hide your email) changed in July 2017 to contain an ID which will identify you if you change your username. So if you want to use email privacy and your account is older than this feature, go toggle the option off and on to generate a new-style noreply address 📄
@brianna So d'you mean to get the new ID? Is having the ID a good thing?
@IceWolf Yes, having the ID means you are able to change your username and still have commits linked to your account.
@brianna Oh that makes total sense! Nice.
