New Website Update: Username Changes!

Mod SupremeDorian  one month ago

A new website update has just released. Here are the details:

  • Anyone can now change their username

    • There is a 30-day cooldown between name changes

    • If you change your username, the bottom of your profile will contain a list of your previous usernames to help people identify you

    • If your username is changed, you will receive an email notification and a notification on the site alerting you of the change

    • You can log-in with any of your previous usernames



      1. Links to profiles also work with previous usernames



  • Mentioning a user now includes a hyperlink to their profile
  • Moderators can now pin posts to individual sections of the site, instead of pinning to the entire site.

Usernames that are deemed inappropriate (such as single-character names, 3 numbers, etc) will be changed back to their original state.

I hope you like this new update!

    @AnoniMosu No. Previous usernames are reserved for their original owner. So if I were to change my name to something else, nobody could name themselves SupremeDorian.

    @klm747klm747 We're trying to figure out a solution for that.

    @SupremeDorian If a username is taken by another account with one year on SP and zero points, is it possible to delete that other account for someone? I'd really like the name KLM747, but it's taken by someone with no posts, no airplanes, and no points.

    login in as previous username sounds very problematic

    I was very excited when I read this and changed my username quickly that I wasn't able to read the part about underscores. Now I'm stuck with this username for 28 more days. Can anyone help? Thanks!

    For some reason this turned up in my favourites page!

    How about also adding a new feature so you can "Follow" a certain tag or successors to a post so that people will get notifications (maybe in something like the jet stream) when there is a new challenge, for example, or when someone creates a successor o a certain post? I know someone could just look up a tag, such as the newest challenges, and see them, but since some players aren't on very much, they might not see all of them. Maybe only allow following of up to 5 tags so users aren't swamped with new ones?
    Thanks!
    I hope you like the idea...

    @klm747klm747 That's an unintended side effect with the revamped post pinning. I set it to be pinned site-wide, and apparently that includes the successors page. It's also on the tournaments page.

    @PotatoWasTaken For SR2, yes. For SP, none that I am aware of.
