Bu they won't become anonymous, they become Guest_(username)_*. Like here.


They do? :huh: Oh well. maybe best to just leave them alone then. I delete a lot of old stuff on facebook and wanted to be able to do the same thing here. :)

Yes, LMV's correct...it still gives the name. And I think that's good. I used to have a board, and if people deleted their accounts or got banned, it would just say "Guest" for them all, and later, reading back over a thread, it was hard to tell how many different people had been talking because they'd all just say "Guest," and you'd be trying to remember who'd taken part in a certain discussion and who said what.

Well, technically I have that ability. I'm reluctant to do it, though, because if someone reads a thread and someone says something like "I agree with Shona Starr," it won't make sense. Unless someone has quoted you in a post. That's the other hitch: If I change your username, it will be changed in your original posts, but if people have quoted you, it will not change in their posts. So it's not as though your former name will be completely erased. It will just cause confusion and head-scratching to anyone reading older threads.

I don't get how it would benefit you, anyway. Are people going to see those specific names and connect them with you? (I know they will if they've read this thread, but I mean, otherwise.) And would replacement names be connected to you less somehow?

Well, sure, it's the same, except the name Candy stays the same. So it would be kind of easy to figure out.

I don't really understand why you want it changed, but changing Shonastarr to Shona Flower at least keeps the same first name. Is there some way you could keep "Dora" somewhere in the new Dora name? (I will go ahead and change Shona for you.)

You can merge users accounts now and pick the primary name for people who like to "change up every so often"

Cool. How would I go about doing that?
