What is Username Change?
Username Change is Brought to you by the Designer of products such as RPG Inferno and Inferno vBShout and the programmer of RPG Integration v3.

Username Change from DragonByte Tech is a modification designed to allow users to change their usernames at will (within your configured limits, of course).

About Username Change
Your members will no longer bug you for username changes, you can let them change it whenever they want!

It also has a history feature in the member profile, showing a list of previous usernames. This history feature uses vBulletin's own Profile Change history - no additional tables needed!

This one works on vB3.8.6 PL2:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=149377

Although, I do believe the "Marco" and "Username change" that Fillip (DBTech) was referring to is this one here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ername&page=15

(Made for vB 3.5.X, but apparently works on vB3.8.X - I use the first one though, so I couldn't possibly say).

HTH.

Has anything come of this yet? Is it possible that specific usergroups can request a username change, but the username will not change unless they are "Approved" by a forum Administrator? Also, as others have said (like the one quoted above) - this is currently being used by byself, on 3.8.X (the top link in my post# 170, above^^^).

This would turn a great Mod into A PERFECT Mod. (with the OPTION to receive a PM notification or not, of new username change applications).

I have installed this, but would not be able to use it until the request above is added, (*for the reason below).

Many Thanks.

(*Not keen on users being able to change their username theirselves, to whatever they want, as it will end up in a mess of silly usernames, perhaps?).

This is great.
Throughout our forum installation, we changed the phrase "User Name" to "Real Name." Is it possible to change that in the profile field that was created with this add on?

Thanks.

Did you try looking in the phrases for it?

That most likely won't be added, it's intended to allow users to change their own, not be a moderation tool
