Ticket #4322 (closed defect: invalid)
Multiple users with same username
|Reported by:||42429||Owned by:||rails-dev@…|
Recently, another user has signed up with my old username, FK270673.
That's no problem for me, he may use it, but I think it may confuse some users who want to contact me and got his account instead.
I have decided to continue as anonymous mapper as I don't support the way how the licence change was brought forward by one week without asking the active mapping community.
However, my concern is rather how to reach a mapper who has changed his username. El Segundo can't win (-> Here is the repulsant snozzcumber!) or Nakor (-> Gone) are more examples of changed usernames.
Is it possible to create a notice or redirect for former usernames? Of course, only if my alter ego accepts :-)
By the way, user Frank# cannot be reached by personal messages, probably because of the # in his username.
Yours, with best regards 42429
