Introduction
I was looking through the Modification Requests forum here and found a pretty good idea. The basic idea was to add a list of users who would like a name change for the administrators. I added the basics and released it. In consecutive versions I have added the abilities and features you have requested and this is the product. It is morphing into a more powerful, more useful system each and every version.

The Tools

User Tools
Inside the User Control Panel, there is an area that is added where a user is given the ability to submit a username that they would like their name changed to. They receive PM updates depending upon the "status" of their request, whether it is Accepted or Rejected.

Administrative Tools
As soon as a request is added to the database, the specified administrator is sent an e-mail saying that a user would like a username request. Inside the Administrators Control Panel, a new section is added under the "Users" navigation tab, that lists all the "Pending" requests with the ability to "Reject" or "Approve" the request. A user will be notified via PM when an action is taken. When a username is approved, the system will automatically change the username.

Username History
This tool will list all username changes that a user has requested. It will also display the status of the request, meaning that if you reject it, this will be displayed. This tool will be built upon in a later version.

Username History Changes:
In the next version, the status of a username change request has been revamped and no longer includes hard-coded "Accepted", "Rejected", and "Requested" status values. More information will be given at the release of v1.1.0!

Requirements
This hack has several requirements. They include:
  • vBulletin v3.6.6 or higher (This is the minimum version required for the next requirement)
  • The usercp_nav_bottom template hook.
To get around the second requirement, you can copy the cell manually or add $template_hook[usercp_navbar_bottom] at the end of the User Control Panel navigation.

Installation
Installing the product is easy. Just follow these steps:
  1. Upload Files into your Administrators Control Panel directory.
  2. Import the product through the Product Manager.
  3. Click Install Here
Known Bugs:
  1. No e-mail is sent out to users upon username change. Fix: The next version will include a fix that will respect all the users settings on receiving e-mail from administrators.
  2. The setting for PM sender was ignored within the code and uses the userid of the administrator who changed the username through the administration back-end. Fix: In the next version, revamped settings and improved back-end will now properly use a setting similar to this.
Big Thanks!
I would like to give a big thanks to Paul M for helping me with my stupid mistakes in v1.0.4 - v1.0.6! Now all of my mistakes should be taken care of (unless I made a mistake in the disallowed if statement). Thanks Paul!

I would also like to say thanks to Marco for pointing out a possible SQL Injection that was in v1.0.4 - v1.0.6 (It was inside the ACP, and used a wrong variable name / clean type).

And to Dannyloski for fixing my modification on his forum and providing the fix here. Much faster than I did it.

Final Remarks
I hope that you will enjoy this product as much as I enjoyed making it.

I've learned not to give definite dates.

no i know you had said this but, is there any way to delete the username change from the history? i had to disable it from showing in the profile, as when i did a "test" change for my account it listed it in there and said it was not approved since i denied it. i'd like to be able to show those that are approved only so members know when someone's username has been changed and not the denied ones. is this possible? if not no big deal, i can live with it disabled. i just didn't want people seeing "test" in my profile for a username request and being denied for it.

I guess you could manually run SQL queries to remove them. Username history is being improved on for v1.1.x.

will it still work with 3.6 versions of vb though, for you 1.1.x update? also i'd have to be walked through running that SQL to do it, but then if i did it that way i'd loose everyone's change, so i can live with them not seeing it.

SQL Queries can be run to remove rows based on certain conditionals. And most likely yes, but there will be features that won't work and I will not be coding it to work for 3.6.

You would need to know your ID and the status.

If you have phpmyadmin access to the forum database, take a peak there. It might be easier to visually see what needs doing or changing with an interface than running SQL queries that you might not be too familar with or even worse, could cost you dearly.

v1.1.0 is coming along nicely. I need to do a few major things like:

Limitations
Allowing One Request Per Time

I am working on phrasing now and Allowing one request per time will be next. Should have a release soon enough.

I think I may have already asked this but is there anyway to move the menu item out of "Moderated Items" to "Details" in UserCP?
