- Username can be choosen when creating or editing a post/thread

- History is updated when a username is changed (from ACP)
- Fully phrased
- Automatic templates edits at runtime. Instructions for manual edits for modified styles are provided.
- As a litle bonus: Usergroups can also be given permission to sent Private Messages on behalf of another username.

Great hack, thank you!

Will there be any way in the future to track who has sent a specific PM by proxy ?

At present there isn't any way to clarify which staff member has actually sent a PM - might be very useful if a staff member is causing trouble, but avoiding consequences by intent :-)

Can this be used to make a post "as" another user? Or is it just preset usernames that can be chosen from a dropdown box?

Bad Bunny:
The usernames ARE official users with all of the things that it comes with.

Marco (or whomever can answer this):
Does it update the post counts of the original username, or of the shared username? The description is a little confusing to me.

Is there a way to have the proxied usergroup be based upon the secondary instead of the primary usergroup?

Anyone still have this working in a more current version? Or know of a similar mod. I'm trying to entice members to become moderators, and if they have anonymity it will help.

I couldn't find anything else when searching.

Cheers
Andy

Would it be possible to make this work for "thread deleted by..." as well?

Thanks in advance!

flashwave, I've had one problem with it. I can't view who the real poster is. Does this work for you?
