What is Username Change?
Username Change is Brought to you by the Designer of products such as RPG Inferno and Inferno vBShout and the programmer of RPG Integration v3.

Username Change from DragonByte Tech is a modification designed to allow users to change their usernames at will (within your configured limits, of course).

About Username Change
Your members will no longer bug you for username changes, you can let them change it whenever they want!

It also has a history feature in the member profile, showing a list of previous usernames. This history feature uses vBulletin's own Profile Change history - no additional tables needed!

* For security issues - vbulletin.org will contact all members who have installed a modification whenever a security issue is brought to their attention.

* Marking a modification as installed also helps us know how many people are using our work, giving us extra incentive to provide more features and new modifications.

It's up to each coder how they wish to utilise the support thread for their modification here @ vBulletin.org (if they support the mod at all).

If you look at our profile, you will notice we have 100 releases (at the time of writing). It is entirely impossible for us to keep track of the few feature request posts in the midst of thousands of pages of support queries, at least without the use of 3rd party tools like Jira.

Since we already have 1st party bespoke tools available @ our site that will allow us to keep track of feature requests indefinitely, we choose to tell people that in order for their suggestion to get taken into consideration they need to re-post it on our site.

Would you not agree this is fair?

In that case, please keep in mind that your suggestions will not be taken into consideration unless there's already a similar thread for the suggestion in question.

Just because we have such tools does not mean we're going to scan through all the threads before asking people to post them in our forums - not every person is as descriptive with topic titles as we'd like

If you think about it, asking people to post suggestions in our forums may steer others with new, original ideas away from posting in these threads and towards our forums without needing to go through the steps of asking them to post there

I have added the feature request at Dragon Byte Tech, as I can see the benefit of this. Knowing who and when can be a huge help. Especially if a problematic member is trying to side step the staff using this feature.

Thanx!

You should make future versions of this have the option to charge for a username change eg: You may change your username once for free, after that it will cost...

But I like it

Let me see if I got this right. If I give someone permissions to be able to change usernames, they can change the name of any username on the site? There is not boundaries for this? Basically, love the mod will make life easier but givins someone unconstraint control pretty much nulls this for us. What I am looking at is if someone has been given the power to change usernames, we want it where they can change usernames for certain specific additional usergroups. Is this possible?

Only if you give them the "Can Change Others' Usernames" and they also have ModCP access.

Exactly what I am looking at. That is way too much control for a moderator. Can you set it up to where it was limited to an assigned usergroup as primary or additional usergroup? Or add an approval system that when anyone wants to change their username, it would go the the admin panel to where an admin has to go in and approve it? Perfect mod, just missing control measures.
