User Control Panel - Usernames

Postby kgcayenne » May 11th, 2016, 7:30 am

I have noticed that the ability to change one's user name is no longer available in the User Control Panel, yet confirmed today (after suspecting for a month or two) that one particular user has indeed changed usernames.

I am curious to know why it is this way. Is a request to the administrator now required? Do only some users have the option?

People used to change their usernames all to often. So it has been changed that you need to request a change. Hope this helps.

Battery is okay, but right after I edited the number, my screen saver inexplicably changed to this...

How many souls do I need to gather in order to change my username?

25,000 posts lets you choose the designation you want under your user name, not what user name you can use.

Given the lot of crazy nut jobs, I'm really surprised that over the years someone didn't change their name to the F-word or something.
