Solved USername Changes

Post by Erosaf on Sat Aug 03, 2013 7:23 pm

Is there a way to set this up on a forum so that ALL username changes that members do must be accepted by staff of the site? I just activated a user account only to have them change their name and troll us as a result. Would like to be able to stop them from doing such a thing.

Sorry you can't allow members to change their username at will but have staff approve of the change.

Alternative would be to disable username changes by ACP --> Users and Groups --> User Options --> Allow users to change their username --> Then create a thread like this:

http://help.forumotion.com/t100698-want-a-username-change

Now admins can take the persons username change request that they've posted and change it in the ACP.

This support forum operates a system called warning bars.

If you scroll down you'll see a whole section detailing how to create a warning system using warning bars.
