    Well it seems like the Username request thread is very popular and i find it difficult to keep track of who people are. i think that for a certain amount of time (lets say 2 weeks) under their new name it shows their pervious name too. that way you have some time to learn who your are talking to.

    If this would be too tough or time consuming to implement it would be just a handy if their signatures displayed their previous username.

    You are right-on about the effort. They can do that themselves though

    I agree that it would be nice for people to include their previous name in their signature. I have done so, and I have seen many others doing the same. The username change has been a very nice opportunity and I'm glad it hasn't been to rough on the community side of things.

    Everybody is putting their old names in their sigs, so it doesn't matter, anyway.

    That's why you choose your name wisely the first time...
