I have been trying to add a custom Blockstack id by navigating to the profile page and clicking on the More button. Unfortunately, the feature doesn’t appear to work. It always results in an error: Error submitting name registration

I'm experiencing the same issue.

The console logs the following messages:

main.6428ee1fae7a8e458387.chunk.js:1 <my-desired-username>.id
main.6428ee1fae7a8e458387.chunk.js:1 <my-desired-username>.id.blockstack

If I’m not mistaken this is the problem that requires a refresh of the page after entering the session password for the new name.

Note: This needs to be repeated when resetting your browser as well if you have more than one name attached to one key.

Thanks, @moxiegirl, for adding this issue on my behalf.

As requested, here are the details of my environment:

  • Browser: Google Chrome Version 74.0.3729.169 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • Platform: macOS 10.14.5 (18F132)
  • Blockstack ID: bauhouse.id.blockstack

As mentioned in the original forum post, I have been trying to add a custom Blockstack id by navigating to the profile page and clicking on the More button. Unfortunately, the feature doesn’t appear to work. It always results in an error: Error submitting name registration.

The console returns the following:

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()
core.blockstack.org/v1/names/<selected-name>.id:1

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()
registrar.blockstack.org/v1/names/<selected-name>.id.blockstack:1

Unchecked runtime.lastError: The message port closed before a response was received.

Forcing a reload of the page results in the same error.

Is there any movement on this issue?

I've been trying to register my preferred ID for several weeks now, and it appears to hinge on a simple 404 error; surely this can be fixed in mere minutes?

I don't think you can get a custom usernames anymore. The onboarding process only allows you to use the blockstack.id usernames. When I made my account, they made me get a username.blockstack.id name but it didn't add the username to my profile right away.

They gave me the option to create a custom id by paying bitcoins. After getting an error for a few days, my profile finally updated to show the username I signed up as on my profile (the username.blockstack.id one).

So I'm assuming that the username you signed up as can't be changed and that's why we get the error.

This should be fixed in the latest version v0.36.3. https://github.com/blockstack/blockstack-browser/releases/tag/v0.36.3

Now when I sign up it doesn't even give me the option to create a "username.id" ID and just makes a "username.blockstack" ID

@kevins That should be expected during sign up, then afterwards you should be able to register more IDs with ".id" through the browser by navigating to the "Identity" tab.

@markmhx It works now. Thanks. The price for the custom names went up by a lot though :(

Sorry about that 😞 We're moving to our own blockchain in part because of BTC price concerns.
