A centalized up-to-date listing of name changes

Just like there is for bans/suspensions.

The reason is that if you're a regular poster you develop history with certain posters. Based on their usernames you know who to avoid. But then "dufus1" who you stopped getting into with because it's pointless, changes their username to "heyI'mcool." Now you have no context for who that poster is or how to deal with them.

Some posters who like to troll, deliberately take advantage of that. So it would be very helpful if a public list was kept and updated every time a change is made.

Former name1 -> Former name2 -> latest name

Thanks. Is that kept up-to-date?

Re: A centalized up-to-date listing of name changes

I don’t think a list is a practical way of recognising name changes. A better way might be to use the line under the username, to read: previously known as ‘previous name’, for a few months after the change.

"hablo" was "hablovah" back in the day. Name changes are recorded only from 2007 or so.

Thanks. And thanks for responding to all my questions even after you pointed me to the list. My apologies for missing that name in my look at it.

I can't believe you didn't know it existed
