When you change your screen name, do older posts and threads keep your old name or does everything get changed to the new screen name?

From what I can tell, old posts stay with the old name....I've seen a few different people's previous names like Steven and Kevin and their older names are what I see in their old posts.

Your welcome.


Yeah no changing identities completely here.

I wish I would have used any different username just b/c my past knows me by this username.

Even if we get our username and whole set and profile changed the old posts will still be under the past username but new set so i ppl search they will find us out.

Too bad. Can't stand my user name anymore. Haven't for years now lol. But I wish all our former posts would get the new name too. Oh well...

The Threads and posts are changed to the New name thumbsup.gif if you edit, or people quoted you, they will have your old name.

thekatieL just got this name change, checked their old posts and threads and they are changed

Ok. I checked a JASandCAMrock old thread that Kevin aka Weedy Spyze aka Midnight Phoenix played.

His username has changed. However, besides the username in the posts, also every edit that he did to his posts still show (I thought that went away) his old username.


I will keep my eye out for what I thought I saw was old username still existing. But you may be right.

Ok. Good so just if ppl quote you, you edit your post, or you have it added to a fan list.

Good to know.

That means it should be decently hard to track someone down if you don't announce your old username when you get your new one.
