Default Username changes

After some discussion, we have decided to allow users to request changing their usernames. To keep things from getting out of hand, here are three simple rules to follow:

1. Only one change is allowed. (major one; minor things like capitalization / typo removal are "free").
2. All changes must be requested in this topic.
3. A request for name change should contain your current username, the desired username and the reason for your request. Example:
Quote:
Old username: JMB
New username: Geezer
Reason: I want my old name back. The one I had before I was so rudely stripped of my identity.
Remember that after the change you will need to use the new name to log in rather than the one you had before!

it'd be nice if there was an option to track what was user's previous username/s

Yeah, I second that.
It'd be nice indeed.
The circumspection of a programmer!

Would be nice, but there isn't one.
Hence rule 3.

4 days till we can discuss that with Studentis. It's top-priority for everyone, and VERY much for them as it draws additional traffic from non-English-speaking parts of the world.

Old username: justpex
New username: Pex
Reason: I use Pex on every forum I am a member of. Justpex is just a longer version of it, for places that don't allow 3 letter usernames. For some reason, I thought this was such a place when I was filling my registration form
