How does the username change period work with imported users?


(Alex Armstrong) #1

I’m migrating a Ning community to Discourse. The imported usernames are of the form Firstname_Lastname. I would like to make it possible for my users to change their username to something friendlier, if they wish.

The default username change period option is set to 3 “days after registration”. How does this work with imported accounts? Is it 3 days after first being imported or after their first login or what?

(Partly related to this topic.)

Since we’re importing “created_at” dates, it’s 3 days after when they registered in Ning.

Right. I’m setting this to 9999 :slight_smile:

Thanks for the heads up!
