User name changes.

Post by Baltorocks123 on September 1st 2008, 1:36 am

Hello, I wanted to come up with this suggestion, how about an option on the admin panel where you can set a certain emount of days/weeks/months for when a user can change his user name.

(e.g. If a members changes his username, he wont be able to re-change it for the next *insert number here* Days/months/years) And also via admin panel, they can re-set the time limit for certain members, incase the member miss types there username)

Oh no.. I hope that doesn't go through, I would hate to have to guess who is who, every other week... I disabled user name change on my board for that reason.

Please add a poll

and why would you want to change your username

It would get hard to tell who is who

So I say NO!

Yea I don't like the idea either
I prefer to change my members names manually so I know who they are

If you wanted to, maybe you could set it as a rule in your forum, maybe make a post saying that user names cannot be changed within X-amount of weeks

Hmm.. Still... Whats wrong with the idea, this could be OPTIONAL, anyway, on a site I go on, they have a restriction, you can only only change your username, AFTER 3 months of your last change, you wont HAVE to change your name, it will stop you changing your name untill a certain date.

I think the techies have better to do with their time than work on "Optional" features that I don't really see the use of

Well... I don't think anyone is getting my point here. If you (as in a member) want to change your username, an admin can set a date, so when you change it, you WONT be able to re-change it untill a certain date.

Well there would be this link that you can press and a small box will tell you the person's username history (All his past names, so you would now).

And YES I love this suggestion!!!

Post by Jalokim on September 2nd 2008, 9:23 am

usernames are one ... if you made a mistake during registration and for example you make a small j in Jalokim then the admnistrator should kindly change it... but total username changes are really annoying and I am amazed that there is an option to switch username changing on/

This is a NO with a capital Q , it really has no use

I agree, if they keep wanting to change there username, then you should give them a board warning. because its a waste of the admins time, when he/she could be doing other things. even though its easy to do, but yeah.

I don't allow my members to change their usernames unless it is absolutely necessary. As Jalokim said before, it can be really confusing trying to figure out who is who when everyone keeps changing their usernames.

Sorry, but I vote 'no'.

Maybe allow 2 username changes for a user, then dont allow them to change their username for a month or something. because on some of the forums i sign up on, i forget to put a capital B. into my username. so i ask that it gets changed, i dont mind doing it on my forum lol, but yeah, i see your views about it

Yes, there would be a link in his profile to say "Username History" and you could see all his past usernames...and yes you could also write it in the Admin/Mod Note box that he got warned for whatever reason.

And someone said that its not possible...actually it is possible, it's on I.P. Boards....

Lol. It's like a program where it ALLOWS them to change there username, after a certain amount of time (say 3 monthes). Witch would mean, if they changed there username, they would HAVE to wait 3 minthes before they get a chance.

No, if I wanted user names to be able to be changed by members I'd have that function set and I don't.

I have an idea for this! After three months they can change their name, then incase they make a typing eror. Within the next three minutes they can change it, but after that its three months.
