Forum users naming

Post by seeed86 » Wed Feb 24, 2016 2:11 am

Hi there!
As far as I noticed, despite of users specifying "nickname" during registration process, they get names based on their email's localpart (before the @). And, in case of duplication, some integer is added to the end of nickname (like for me).

At the same time, I'm pretty sure, users will be happy to have their own nicks (which they specified during registration), and not that autogenerated thing.

So, I suggesting you to enable "Allow username changes" under "General options" in user registration settings.

AFAIR, phpBB (forum engine) will track their uniqueness itself.

And like me. I would like to rename myself to something less weird.
If not, what is the easiest way of contacting an admin to get a proper user name?
