Display Name History

Recommended Posts

Hey folks.

I saw someone mention the other day that the 'Display Name History' feature hasn't been working, I've fixed that up today.

For those who aren't sure how it works, if you go to a members profile next to their name up the top you will see an icon that will show you all changes to that members display name. Helps if you don't recognise someone!

Thank god. The random name changes is one of the most annoying parts about this place. I think it would be better if there was just like a nickname you could change.

Yeah I swear I didn't know who half the active members were anymore even though they're probably members I've known for a long time. Thanks for the fix!

I remember when your display name became your login and a few people couldn't figure out how to log in anymore.

I guess that was part of the reason we built in the "Real Name" option which most people have gotten on board with. Theoretically we could add a 'Nickname' field in a similar fashion but that means everyone has 3 different name fields which is a bit excessive.

Nice feature, but like Niku I don't see it either.

I'm on Safari 9.1.2 but doesn't work on Chrome either if it might be browser related.

EDIT: I don't see the icon but there's now a field below the profile visitor list

I know it’s not supposed to show up if the display name for a user has never been changed, are you guys definitely looking at someone who’s changed their name?

if so that’s a bit weird, I’ll look in to it.

Well spotted, that seems to work in the exact same way.
