Question for changing username


Recommended Posts

Situation: if someone on the forum decides to change his/her username, will quotes which are made for their old username,  change as well? 

Unfortunately, no, because quotes and mentions uses Display Name instead of ID's.

It changes in the author pane of the post but not in quotes which doesn't make sense. It makes sense to make it retroactive in both or none. Change username, show old username in old posts and quotes or new username in old posts and quotes. So at least the posts match up with the respective quotes, which they don't.

A flaw in pretty much every forum software.
