Could just be for the mods; I don't see it either.

This is my opinion as well.

Yep, ditto, it must be a mods only thing.

It shouldn't appear in the User Control Panel, but moderators are able to see and modify it due to them being in a staff usergroup. xD
Only administrators can edit the field on accounts besides their own - that much is intentional on my part. I can't change moderators being able to modify that field at all for the above reason, but it would become uneditable if they left the mod group.

  • All is clear now, thanks Neam!

    My main reason for asking: if one could put anything one wanted, we'd have a lot of spelling errors and intentional identity frauds :lol: !

Is the previous field only to be used for users who just changed their username or could we have the field up with the last username we had before our current one without asking for a new one now? mine was wolvesworld, and perhaps it could be useful for old friends who didn't know I switched users at the time to know? Shrug...Not that it would be relevant now...

  • Haha, I was extremely confused coming on this morning and was like, "where the huh did all these people come from?" And then I looked at the field and was like, "wut." Then I felt lonely [?] because all the usernames that I once felt familiar with were gone. ...And then I was like, "ERMAHGAWD I CAN FINALLY CHANGE MY UGLY USERNAME"

    So...

    Please? I checked for any other usernames like that and none came up so. c:
    If it doesn't work just leave it as it is then. o3o

Good question... I suppose there's no harm in having it work both ways. Provided you want to show your previous username from the 2010-2011 round and don't want to/haven't changed your username this time, then feel free to ask about having your last username added to your profile; but be aware that it will be overwritten with your present username if you do want to change your current username for however long this round is active. Hope that made sense.

Really don't want to create multiple fields for multiple usernames so as not to clutter up the profile and mini-profile. We only opted to go with a profile field so people didn't have to juggle it around their signature (particularly for those of you with code-intensive signatures!) so that an older user would still be recognised even with their new name.
