Is it possible to change the previous usernames section in the bios to show the user's last (and previous) username instead of a username they had several years and many name changes ago? Or show all previous names? The amount of times I've looked at someone with a recently changed name and went to their profile to see who they are, only to see that their "previous" username was a name they haven't used in years is a bit unhelpful and frankly seems the defeat the point of having the previous usernames section at all imo.
we are not history yet.
we are happening now.
how miraculous is that?

Having a field that displays all usernames seems more likely to become cluttered over time. I can see that "previously" is a tad misleading for that purpose; renaming it "originally" or something to that effect would be more appropriate, or perhaps it's time to remove this field altogether - whatever may happen, having a single text field was always intended to show the original username someone had had before it was changed during this run of the UCRT-
You can also view a member's original username on their full profile page.

I do see the benefits of a list-type structure shown instead - this is partly why a master list was manually compiled to show every change that has ever been requested, hopefully to make up for that lack of every change being visible on a user's full profile. Changing a single text custom profile field into a multiple entry field isn't exactly straightforward either; we'd have to create a new field and then re-enter the data of all 403 entries in the master list manually. There's no way to convert an existing field into another type.

I didn't think putting every past username would be all that practical, but I thought I'd put it out there just for kicks. I don't know if we need to get rid of that field altogether as I do think it still has some merit, but changing it from "previously" to "originally" would reduce confusion on my end at least.

EDIT-- just noticed that you did change it from previously to originally! Thanka kindly c:

Would love to see a new FAQ for the Anniversary Edition and Tower Fall that neatly compiles all announced features, pricing and the like. It would be great both for reference and to make it easier on people who are wondering something about the new version without having to sift through countless Developers’ Blog posts.

I see that there is a Dev's Blog archive area on the forum home page, but nothing in it. So maybe it's in the works? Agree it is getting a little crowded though!

I'm not sure if this has been asked, but what if there was a place to advertise your writings and artwork in Users Writings and Users Artwork, I think it would be cool.

User Artwork is different, because new threads are only posted by moderators with attachments. If you want to show off or discuss your artwork, there are a few threads you can do that in General Other Topic Discussion/GTKEO.

If you want to make art for people on-site, you can do that in Avatars and Graphics.

i've been kinda kicking around this suggestion for a bit...
we have a general art thread, and several other threads about software for art and stuff but...
what about making an actual art discussion forum? that way there could be a topic specifically dedicated to digital art, watercolor, acrylic, graphite, anatomy, etc, rather than having it all in one thread.

Oh, I'd love it! I don't usually like to show my art but I certainly enjoy talking about it so I definitely would use that, too!

We could adjust the current Avatars & Graphics forum to include discussion about different art mediums, since the forum already offers topics on basic avatar creation. I do not see the need for an art subforum all by itself.

the issue I have with that is the discussion threads being buried in shops.
