Forum name changes

Recommended Posts

What is everyones thoughts on allowing people to change their forum names? It is easy to do, and there is a record of it in the admin control panel. All posts by the user will show with their new name.

Thinking it might be better to just create new accounts. That way the old account names will be reserved instead of players temptations to create accounts with the old staff names.

Actually another option is to enable the "Display Name" feature.

 

The options available are as follows:

  • Characters allowed in usernames - If this is set, IP.Board will ensure all usernames only contain characters in this list upon registration. To allow only alphanumeric usernames, use: a-zA-Z0-9
  • Block linebreaks in names - Do you want to explicitly block newlines, linebreaks, and html tags in usernames and display names?
  • Maximum display name length - The maximum number of characters that a display name can be.
  • Prohibit display names from selecting log in names - If "yes", one is not able to choose a display name that is the same as another's display name OR another's log in name. If "no" one is not able to choose a display name that is the same as another's display name only.

My recommendation would be:

  • "a-zA-Z0-9\-_ '" - All letters, numbers, dash, underscore, space and apostrophe
  • Yes
  • 25 is default
  • Yes

Bumping this thread.

 

I would be fine enabling the "Display Name" feature."

 

Does anyone have any objections to this feature or have another idea?
