3DG - Nick Changer

This addon allows normal users to change their usernames from the preference panel, without any action needed to be taken by the moderators or board administrators. The system has the ability to configure how often the users can do this, so you can restrict the username change to once per year, for example.

How It Works
The addon adds a "Change username" link in the usercp to let the user change his username. When the user confirms the action, and if the given username is valid, the change is applied.

Additionally, and for moderation purposes, the addon creates a new usernote for the user with the previous username and the date of the change so you can track and follow any particular user and its changes.

A public panel with all the usernames historically used by the user is also added in the member page, to allow all users know who this guy is.

If the user tries to change his username again before the next allowed period for changes, a leyend is shown instead of the form.

Stats (version 0.2)
* Require Template Modification : USERCP_SHELL
* Plugins : 7
* Templates : 8
* Phrases : 26
* DB New Tables : 1
* DB Modifications : 1 (user table)

Version 0.2 : Added the option to show the previous username used in the postbit for a period of time
Version 0.1 : Initial Release

We have tested the plugin with vBulletin 3.6.8 only. I think this won't work with 3.6.10 or higher due the forgery protection included after that version. We are working on upgrading our vBulletin, so we can upgrade the addon too.

No, is not the same. As I can see, the Username Request is like a ticket system. You need a user with admin privileges to accept or reject the username change.

In ours addon, all users change his username directly.

Version 0.2 Released. Now you can show (optionally) the previous username in the postbit for a configurable period of time.

The username change form does not have the forgery protection code, so I think will fail on 3.8. I'll try to update our staging server to test the addon on diferente versions of vbulletin.
