I’m on a team that’s currently working to setup our own Discourse forum. We’re using SSO, so people’s usernames are based on an external value and are not editable to users. In our case there’s the possibility of two or more people with the same name joining the forum.
We’re wondering - What would happen if two John Smiths joined our forum? Would there be some sort of conflict for the first/second John, or would the new username automatically “increment” in some way? I.e., the first one is
john_smith and the second one is
john_smith1 or something similar.
