Re: Can we change our user names now?

For once I am agreeing with Camomof5. Just reading random threads today I noticed a great number of people who have changed their names and it is confusing the hell out of me. I don't even know why it's bothering me so much lol maybe it's just the PMS and stress but I don't like it at all.

Re: Can we change our user names now?

So users can change their name, with the thought that their signature and feedback stay the same, correct?

But they can completely change their siggy still or does that option go away? Feedback stays, which is good but at first glance at a post, at a sale, you can't tell who someone is because those numbers all look the same.

I can see a few situations where it would be appropriate, like a stalker. Otherwise.... Oh well. Not like my make a difference it just seems like an odd thing to do.

The members requesting a username change can always put something in their sig about it.

Example: I used to be called "diaperswappersbiggestfan"

I think this should be a must if they change it, I know some moms on here wont deal with other people for a reason. ie, receiving hair or smoke on items that they heard about, so now it may be confusing.

There's always the ignore option, that won't change

On eBay, you can change your username. But your old username is forever in your profile, and you can see the different ones people have used.

Would it be that hard, if a person changes it their TITLE say "Formerly Someonewhodidntliketeirscreenname" or whatever for a specific amount of time. Like Camomof5 said, people might not have bought from somone in the past but have a list of people not to do business with for whatever reason (smoke, whatever). Maybe the $1 can be waived.

Re: Can we change our user names now?

I'd say adding it as the title or something is a great idea - though like I said I'd have to put something like pyra*tekk because I can't let it be found on google by looking for it without the stars.
