Disable users from changing their display name
« on: November 17, 2017, 06:44:36 PM »

Currently we can change our usernames at any time in the Account Settings screen. While convenient, it also invites impersonation and mockery from unscrupulous users.


Could we disable this feature? Here are instructions.

I find you very annoying. If you have failed to realize by know, unless something major happens the mods don't do anything.

I'm sorry I made you feel this way.


Your feelings aside, I would have thought that you'd be in support of this idea since you've been a victim of impersonation. I'm offering a solution to the root cause in addition to banning the offending accounts like you suggested (which is kind of funny considering what you said here).

I don't think the actual admins/creators of this forum visit here or monitor the forum.

I don't think so either. But since a dedicated section exists, I'll continue to talk into the echo chamber.

Right, I was so confused since the names and profile pics kept changing. Absolutely bizarre feature to have on a forum with ongoing discussions.
