The issue of changing user names has come up again and I felt it was important enough to bring to the ASF community once more for discussion and a vote, especially since the number of members has grown significantly since the last time it was brought up. On this particular issue I will respect the majority view and a decision will be made on that basis. By majority view I mean the majority of those who feel that the issue is important enough for them to vote on it.
A small minority of members feel that for one reason or another they have outgrown their original user name. Either that or they wish their ASF user name to be the same as their user names on other forums.
If there are going to be changes in user names, this is what I am proposing:
- Each ASF member is entitled to change their user name once and once only.
- Those members who decide to change their user name must have as their custom user title (the text below their user name) for a period of one year, "Formerly known as '(Insert previous user name here)'"
- User name changes will be permanently recorded in this thread: http://www.aussiestockforums.com/for...ead.php?t=4576
Please vote in the poll and feel free to share your views about user name changes in this thread. This is the last time this issue will be up for discussion so please make your views known if you feel strongly about it one way or the other.
