Somewhere on your profile there should be a link or dropdown of all the usernames you've went by.

that would be good. if we could have it be a mix of manual (so people may add past usernames and nicknames others have given them) as well as automatic (for future name changes) it would be ideal

Let's just add another tab to user profiles for past usernames, nicknames, and child/dupe accounts

i flipped the permissions switch for the username changing panel in the user CP for regular members

if we have an automatic name log in the full launch of the proper forum it'll be fine

though if someone happens to change their username too often to the point of it being confusing and abusive of the feature it may become necessary to make a group without the permission available

this would be fine, however that isn't an option by default so it'll need some tinkering

i'm more inclined to suggest hackaround solutions rather than ones that would require more effort from others as i feel bad asking for features i won't be able to contribute to on the technical side much

though you are right

Maybe have it so you can hit a report style button for admins to change/delete it

  • legal names: not fair to force people to expose their legal name to the internet forever just because they weren't aware of the consequences of using their legal name on the internet at the time of joining MW.
  • real names: wtl can explain that one better than me i guess
  • deadnames: if someone joined with the username John, and her legal name was John, and it turned out she was MTF and her real name was Jane, and she changed her username to CatLover14, and she didn't want her deadname (John) on the internet, it wouldn't be fair to force her to expose her deadname just because she wasn't sure if she was ready to let the world know she was a female and wasn't aware of the consequences of using her legal name on the internet at the time of joining MW.

While these concerns are valid, I don't think they would ever become a widespread issue.
Maybe we can drop old usernames from the list after a certain period, along with having an option to request they be removed.
