That's possible, but I am not a hypocrite and don't have anything to hide.

It doesn't look like just plain Tommy has been taken, can you switch my name to that if possible? :)

I'd just like to add one comment. If you used [ member= ] tags and the user has changed his or her name then those tags display nothing. I think that it would be nice if they could automatically be redirected to the new name. Is such a function difficult to implement?

What I mean is that I used tags like [ member=SearanoX ] and now he changed his username to "Tommy" but those tags still point to "SearanoX", thus nothing is displayed.

You can check this post to see what I'm talking about.

Some software support a different display name and login name. I think it is here but is disabled. The unfortunate problem with that type of option is that it can become difficult to keep track of people when they can change their name all the time.

@tomasz86: You'll have to hunt all those tags and correct them by hand, I'm sorry to say. On the bright side, people here at MSFN change usernames very rarely, so you won't be having to do it often.

I just noticed that my name displays as "DarkRats". It should read as "darkrats" (all small letters).

Is there any way to change this, short of opening a new account? Would the new account let me use "darkrats", or would it be too close to "DarkRats"?

New members cannot do it by yourself (usually). You need to ask the administrator for help.

Does the name change affect your Post count?

AFAIK...

Does the name change affect your Post count?

No, it does not.

 

And it appears that this Topic hasn't been visited by the Supervisors (e.g. Cluberti) for a while?
