Recently we have been noticing quite a handful of username changes and some does seem to create confusion among other forum users like this situation or this situation. If there is a name change of notable user or someone who have been here for long time, it would be better if they have made a post or report on the same for their name change. Some forum accounts are identified only through their reputation and it is quite important in a forum where money is involved.

For instance, we never knew the real name of satoshi but the alias was very important in the creation of bitcoin. Similarly, there are quite a handful of us where this forum name would be literally well known and would be considered as an important identity. If someone is willing to report their name change in forum could use this topic or create a newer one.

This is how you check a user's original username: click MY MESSAGES > New Message > Find Members > Enter current username > Search > Click the username under Results.
Then, check the field after "To:" on the new message you're sending.

mjglqw or should I say mk4 is one of the most notable user in our local section. I was surprised on how mjglqw changed his username, it also comes to a point that I think mk4 is an alternative account because they are both wearing their website avatar and a chipmixer signature.

Are these changing username is based on how much of their contributions inside the community in order to be given a chance by theymos? Or is it because they paid bitcoin? Huh

It is no surprise if there is an increase of change of username request in the community.

Am I wrong or also Micgoossens changed his account name to El duderino_?

EDIT: Also Palmoldar to BitcoinGirl.Club.
-snip-

You can add this, I am not sure if this is accurate but yeah, I am sure on Micgoossens because of his signature haha,
Theymos is having a good mood for approving a lot of username change request  Cheesy

It is no surprise if there is an increase of change of username request in the community.

I think it's happening because Theymos is on good mood or based on the recently change username they are all valuable members, so random members requesting for changing their username will be ignored I think.

Or as long as you have a acceptable reason to change you username I think.

Are these changing username is based on how much of their contributions inside the community in order to be given a chance by theymos?
theymos changes usernames only when he is convinced with their PM and would consider doing so only he does know your username to some extent. alia changed their name from alia_armalle (not sure about the name) by sending a message to theymos and he has said it would be done after going through the trust scores as well. So probably its kind of either your request of changing username may get accepted or rejected.

Or is it because they paid bitcoin? Huh
Mods are the ones who can change their usernames now and then without paying btc (Donators and VIPs)

It is no surprise if there is an increase of change of username request in the community.
AFAIK SMF allows changing of display names, but theymos changed the rule for usernames when there were scams going on with these changed usernames.

See this :

Done. Now only moderators, Donators, and VIP members can change their names automatically. Other members should contact me. I'll probably ignore your request if you have less than 50 posts (unless your posts are very good).

This was way back in 2011, then it was changed to the fact that forum users with good reputation can change their usernames if they feel like.

...snip...
Added. Thanks

I did notice a couple of users who have changed their usernames. Thank you for making a summary.

I remembered the time when I was still a newbie, and there are still a couple of signature campaigns back then that accept that rank. I luckily got taken in that campaign when someone impersonated my account, the link of the impersonator here and posted a change of BTC address IIRC. When that happened, I reported it to the mod, and I think it got banned.

So the point of my story above is that, after reporting it and whatnot, my username changed. From a capital "C" to a small letter "c". "Crwth" to "crwth" I know I registered it as a capital C, but I just remembered it now that that is the moment.

Do you guys think I will be given a chance to make it into a capital letter again? I know that it's a small thing, but it somewhat matters. Lol.

Interesting research.
I understand that in some rear cases member would need to change his username,
but I hope this will not become a habit and a trend in 2020

Agreed, it's quite confusing when some well known members change their names. Cheesy

All written posts referring to e.g. "micgoossens" will be confused by members when they read them and they don't know "who's that legendary micgoossens, his name is written all over the forum but I can't find an account".  Cheesy
In addition, it's a little change for the history of the account. While I've associated micgoossens witch a Dutch Bitcoiner (and a duck), El duderino_ seems to be someone from espanyol. xD

I hope, the old names are not available to register new accounts.  Lips sealed

I would give it a try.  Smiley

@asu

I’ve never interacted with you on here before & I can see that you’re a Legendary Member with positive trust but part of me can’t help but feel this is a bit of a dick move. I’ve met ... multiple times in real life & consider him a real friend so I felt compelled to leave a comment here.

I hope that you’ve only done this to test the forum, kind of like a Meta task because ... is DT1 & a lives very comfortably in real life. There could quite easily be opportunities to abuse the account ‘micgoossens’ for personal gain.

You should have kept this discrete & not made it public imo if you were just testing if it’d be possible to create a new account in a recently changed nickname.

I’m going to keep me eye on this but the first thing I’m doing it tagging the ..... account so people know it’s not the real OG ....

Apologies if I’ve offended you, it wasn’t my intention.

I don't see any ill intent here. It's good to know that old usernames can be recycled. That's a huge risk IMO and a very good reason to reconsider changing one's username, or at least to re-register the old one preemptively.

Those lazy bastards.

You're one of the better forum user, better people around.....

But some of who I know preferred not be known anymore by previous forum name, then why keep making those posts, you should respect there wishes with this.... let say some have some issues with scams or whatever, then why keep connecting unnecessarily dots?

These are no circumstances like Alt accounts or whatsoever who's doing harm to anybody... like take me as an example, you know my previous and new name, if something would be wrong then you can easily find out, nobody is harmed by my name change....

Those things are not for nothing, I think with invalid reason we cannot change our name.

Interesting: this breaks the link between old and new username as I described here.

I hope that you’ve only done this to test the forum, kind of like a Meta task because mic is DT1 & a lives very comfortably in real life. There could quite easily be opportunities to abuse the account ‘micgoossens’ for personal gain.
Am I the only one who thought it's a good thing to know changing your username means you can lose your old name? That's especially imporant for Donators who temporarily change their name to something else!

But some of who I know preferred not be known anymore by previous forum name, then why keep making those posts, you should respect there wishes with this.... let say some have some issues with scams or whatever, then why keep connecting unnecessarily dots?

What harm does publishing that info do to anyone? Your old username is all over the place in every old quote etc. If you want a clean start create a new account.

I'm not only speaking for myself, I have noticed name changes and people didn't post for months anymore.... then take back where they left.

As for me for example if i'm have been in any kind of weird situation, but I know there could be a problem... changed name cause of good reason... writes months with the new name then you're getting out of the picture ...

If every where keeps been written he was him etc then its just more easy...
