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?

See Old Username Even if Their Profile is Private

Please.

I have people on my friend list whose identity remains unknown to me because their profile is private and I cannot see their previous username.

Or just get rid of name changes altogether and revert any name change //forums.everybodyedits.com/img/smilies/cool

Re: See Old Username Even if Their Profile is Private

I know some people who changed their username and set their profile to private because they wanted to get rid of their previous 'reputation'.

Maybe as a friend only feature show their privious username. Not even sure about that.

If people want to remain unknown it's their decision.

Re: See Old Username Even if Their Profile is Private

Yeah, honestly, I think we should be able to see people's older usernames. I come from another website, where they recently allowed name changes. To avoid confusion, they had a fade hover link that shows every alias that particular person has used.
I think, if name changes are happening with Everybody Edits, this would be a good feature that removes any sort of confusion among the parties.

Pretty sure Runescape has something like this, too

Quite frankly, I've never played RS. Is it as good as they sound?

Make it an user option however, because there are users who want to completely hide their old usernames and reputation.

Oh yeah let's make it so old users will be recognized as the same noobs for ever even if they change their nickname, because of BuzzerBee's amazing idea.

Users have the right to hide their reputation. Why would you prevent them?

I used to have a terrible reputation. If you've truly changed, nobody is going to care about your old reputation. If you haven't changed, hiding your old username won't do anything because you will just form a bad reputation again. Hiding from your problems does nothing. Also users shouldn't have the right to do it, they don't on other games with this option as mentioned in previous posts

Bots can easily tell the old username of a user, so it's never been that private at all.

Re: See Old Username Even if Their Profile is Private

Can we have the option to not show our previous usernames?

I suggested this. BuzzerBee said it would defeat the purpose. If that's the case, the this suggestion would defeat the purpose of username changes.

Re: See Old Username Even if Their Profile is Private

I thought people changed names because they wanted a cooler alias and/or were tired of their previous name. I didn't know we had so many outlaws running from their past.

I wish private profiles would be all unlocked. There are many profiles with epic old worlds that the owner just made private for some weird reason and then left EE forever.
