There have been a few name changes on the forum recently. It's not a major issue yet it does cause some confusion and also dilutes the community strength if a member thinks they are speaking to someone new!

Would members who change their display name consider posting the old one as their "Custom Title" for a while so others can keep up.

Generally I would encourage others to consider using their genuine first names or an alias real name (plus a number or something else for common names).

Gentle reminder to those who have changed their forum names. Please display your previous name in the Custom Title.
Let's go beyond this illusion, shall we?
