Username change history.

Post by Susan1814 on August 3rd 2011, 5:39 pm

I think our forums should have a username change history, so that if someone's changes their username, its easier to track down who has been doing what. And an example, if someone has been not following the forum rules, and they change their username to not get caught, the Administrator can see their username history, track them and can just ban the member. ....But what do you think?

Doesn't help if the user is allowed to edit the username themselves.

This couldn't hurt, voted yes.

Think of a forum like this, it would help a lot in keeping track of people.

I support the idea. I feel it should be okay if every user can view the username change logs. Either that or hold a topic that you update if someone has changed their username. Either way I feel this idea should be implemented.

I only let admins change usernames and only once. And we always post it in a special thread for it. It can get really confusing if members could do it several times even if there was a history.

Unless I'm missing the point here, which is likely possible lol. There's an option to "disallow" users from changing their username.
I'll wait for clarification before i vote .

I think that its better not to allow people to change their usernames and that they must contact an Admin wich will be the person that will change their nick, and write that change into a hidden text field...(just like is setted on the Forumotion Support forums)

Im not going to vote because, from my point of view, this wouldnt be necessary, because this can be done manually.

A History of Changes to Usernames

Post by SLGray on July 3rd 2014, 10:05 pm

I know on other forums that when you look at a member's profile there is a button/link to show the history of your changes to your username.

I think this would be a great option for Forumotion forum.  I know that this would only work on forums that allow members to change their usernames in their profiles.
