    View Old Username(s) Option

    How about a option that allows you to view someone's old usernames, in their profile? Often times, especially if I go inactive for a bit, I comeback confused, trying to recognize my old friends and such. In the past it wasn't a major issue since there were Username Change Events with lists. But now with many members changing usernames weekly due to premium it's really hard to keep track of people, so being able to see people's old usernames would be a big help.

    BTW: I have no idea about the technical stuff, so if the site doesn't keep track of such things ignore this.

    There was such a thing for like a day, then they removed it. I don't see why they did.

    Really? I don't remember. That at least shows this is possible.

    Re: View Old Username(s) Option

    I'm pretty sure it's an option for Premium Members. It used to be possible for normal members too, but it was removed fairly quickly.

    How does that work? It's not that necessary if it'll be too much of a hassle.

    Eh, or we could do what serpent does._.
    link us to his old profile or list his old names._.

    It's good for those that buy premium monthly. But for those like me who change there name every once in a while. It's not needed.

    Yeah but hardly anybody lists their old usernames. It would be fine if everyone did that on their profile but right now almost nobody is doing it.

    It was implemented but taken away because people were abusing it somehow.

    I'm honestly not sure, but I think people used it to get free name changes. Although I'm not sure on that.
