Original name: privacy issue
Requested name: cfvisuals

Reason: I came up with better business name, so instead of using personal name, I think it's more professional to have internet users address me by my business name.

Just an F.Y.I.

I keep hearing, reading or being PMed that this thread has not been updated for months.

- I do not "update" this thread. I simply make the name changes.
- If you look back at the past few pages (indeed, directly above this post) one can see that some/most of the requests have in fact been granted.
- If you did not get your request, it's because I am unconvinced by your needs. Go back read read the first post and see if that makes any sense.
- It's hard for me to take seriously people that post 3 times in 5 years needing to have a name changed. Again, go back and read the first post in this thread.

Is it possible to request a dormant user name? The name I would like appears to be abandoned and was last used for posting over twelve years ago (although it may have been used for browsing since then, but I can't see that).

Current name: Mike-DT6
Requested name: Mick
Reason: Changing branding and want to lose the 'DT6' bit.

I don't want to waste my opportunity to request a name change if we only get one go, so if the above isn't possible I hope I can ask again with an alternative choice.

Thanks :)

I can sympathize with all the possible confusion that name changes can wrench the archived database of past posts....

What happens to those posts made under the previous name....?
Is there a link connecting the 2 names in a search for either name....?
Do the old named posts display in the User CP list of threads under the new name?
....and what about PMs under the old name...?

I am migrating from Canon to Nikon and my current name would be irrelevant....I was thinking of changing names from Kitacanon to KitaNikon....but wonder about the above ramifications....my apologies if they have already been answered....if so please just direct me to them ....

Thanks....

vBulletin (and AMASS) use what's called a "relational database", where (somewhat simplified) there's a table with entries for each member, another with entries for each post, a table for posts in each thread, and a table for threads in each forum. If you look at the URL for any given thread, forum, etc., you can see some of the references to these tables and which entries are being called up.

Even though you have a user name, your posts are all associated in the POTN database with your user NUMBER. Your name is also associated with that number; when your name is changed, that number doesn't change. So, your posts, PMs, etc. will all now show the new name when displayed. Searches for posts by "KitaCanon" won't find anything; searches for posts by "KitaNikon" will find all your posts.

OTOH, if someone else called you "KitaCanon" in a post and you view that post after getting your name changed to "KitaNikon" since they entered plain text, not a user name field, that post will still refer to you as "Kitacanon". Searching for the text "KitaCanon" will only find posts where you were mentioned by someone else, whatever the context, as "KitaCanon".

I was just wondering if anyone was able to look at my request in post #1163 above. I'm not sure if nothing happening means either: no; yes but we haven't done it yet; or neither yes nor no because we haven't read it yet!

Thanks :)

When you've posted a certain number of times, the title will change. There are new titles in AMASS and you fall into the "Assimilated" bracket now.:-)
