          It's going to show your previous username as well, but just need to tweak something to make that work...

            Ok, it works now... you might not like it, but the strikethrough is easy to understand, and will automatically go after 3 months.

            Time to do a few more changes for people...

              It already works
              It's looks good imo + i think that information of previous username should be somewhere on profile, permanently.

              btw the warning about quota limit is barely noticeable now
              be kind to every kind (also the unkind kind!!!!! )

                Why?

                Some of us have requested changes that are just so insignificant, its not worth it - I don't want the 04wayne bit there forever., thank-you.

                    ^ why not only Eamon? it would look better imo

                    btw, lars, you're great...previous quotes already have implemented new usernames

                      Yeah it probably would but I like keeping my year of birth close to my name.

                        Thanks! I'm not going to argue with your first point ;) - but on the second point, I'm not seeing it, I think the old names are showing. If it can be fixed, it probably won't be until the weekend....

                                Will it stay there forever, or it will disappear there too, like the strike-through ones?

                                  'Tis done. Here are all the changes:

                                  04wayne -> Wayne
                                  mimifan09 -> Eamon
                                  chun1702 -> Chun
                                  KevinScream -> LonelyDreamer
                                  hugom2c -> hugo
                                  JustForMe -> summer
                                  jkkdark -> Jonathan
                                  BreakBreakDown -> Dior
                                  jlo17 -> Terence


                                  Hopefully I haven't messed any up; it would be especially awkward if I actually swapped them around or something! PM or reply here if any problems.

                                  I'm planning to leave this amnesty open until the end of February, after which it will be a good while before it happens again.

                                  I haven't decided, but probably at least a year.

                                      I can totally live with this, I actually like this - I just can't wait for the strike-through to disappear in 3 months!

                                              Changing your username completely is not a good idea in my opinion, I think I'll just add capitals and an exclamation mark to mine.

                                                I think having the old username next to the new one for a bit is helpful so we can remember who's who

                                                I like my username, but I wonder if Megan is taken
                                                I've now met Dean Ambrose FOUR TIMES - 28/03/15, 02/04/16, 20/08/16 & 01/04/17!!

                                                  Well in the case of Terence, I've pretty much called him by his first name (or just T) for ages now, not his former username...not like none of us long-time regulars don't know people by their first names etc.

                                                  In some other cases, I may do a double-take & have to remember their previous username, but for others who have gone to their real names, it's fine IMO.

                                                    ^ Yeah almost everyone I interact with regularly call me by my name and I started to cringe whenever anyone called me by old username so I was only delighted to get rid of it.
