Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Old quotes have the old names too. You're more likely to fix these issues than Diff is.

That is due to the quotes quoting the username, not the the user id. DMs and posts have however the attribute of the poster's user id. I currently can't think of how the old name appears to be there.

Edit: Whoops wrong account

Posts and PMs don't just store the ID, they store the name as well. Can avoid an extra join that way even though it doesn't actually avoid it in the end so who knows why.

But when the username is changed, the PM table isn't updated, least not currently
