Back in the day, if a user had a name change, you could check that by viewing the ratings that they left for someone else.

Now you cannot do that.

What can we do about that? :grin:

Because the 'view ratings' pages have changed.

yep.

If you perform a search of the old name, the new posts will still come up. But yeah... you need to know the name first.

Stop granting name changes? heh

People think we're just uptight for not wanting to change names too often. But there's no built-in way to track the changes... technically the ratings thing was a bug, not a feature; it tracked people by username (asinine) instead of by ID (the obvious way to do it). I commented on the situation here.

ythan.. would there be anyway to be able to log in under your new name if you had a name change

i still have to log in as OHSBrave... it doesnt really bother me, but i didnt know if it was something that could be easily changed.

Yep this one was way easy to change. Should work now. You can use either your original name or your display name when signing in.

I prefer using my old one, since it's 4 letters as opposed to 12. :wink:

If you click the gallery of someone who has changed names, it should show one of their past names (it varies if they have had multiples). Only a small percentage of users have galleries, so this is more like an FYI type of deal rather than a consistent way to track names :laugh:.

<--- Check my gallery for an example.

Maybe an internal note should be made right before the name change?

I will implement that in the future. :grin:

It really isn't a big deal, for the most part. Typically it is a long-term member who has changed their name, and it is easy enough to figure out who it is - other times it is "how did this person get to that amount of posts without me ever noticing them?" :grin:
