Would allowing username changes cause any unforseen issues? What to you think the pros and cons might be? If we allowed username changes by request, should we place any restrictions on it and, if so, what might those restrictions be? A little background: It has been our experience that requests for username changes will inevitably arise (in fact, we have already had some requests on MilePoint). The motivations vary: privacy concerns, location changes, consistency with a name used on other sites, typos, and just plain not liking the name anymore are all reasons we have heard. It is generally accepted that a member's username represents their identify in an online community, but we want to know if you agree with that or, more precisely, how you think these requests would best be handled on MilePoint. What do you think?
