The thread is designed to be a log of all name changes, regardless of which admin changes a user's username. It doesn't create a new thread each time a username is changed.

Just wanted to check, will this work with other mods that offer the ability to the member to change their username?

Awesome idea Mark.

No, this product's main plugin is hooked at "useradmin_update_save" so it only generates a post when an admin changes a user's username in the "User Manager."

There would really be no way that I know of catch a name change facilitated by another product as this could be done many different ways.

4.2.2 allows members to change their own name or this addon allows members to change their own username via usercp?

This product auto-edits the "modifyprofile" template to add a username field at the top of the form. vB 4.2.x doesn't allow users to change their usernames out of the box.

This will take some work to port to vB 3.8.x since the format of the template is different, but I will get this working soon. For the time being, I have removed the statement about it working on vB 3.8.x.

Hi Mark, I looked through the code but did not see this... is there any chance of the addon having a cooldown and no-reuse period?

Cooldown: User cannot change their username no less than X days (abuse prevention).
No-reuse: Utilize the vBulletin4 option called "usernamereusedelay" in the User Registration Options section.
