Would you consider on adding no "Name" change after the registration?


I would love to have the option to force a user to have a “Name” in the registration process and that the admin can set the “Name change period” to 0. I was wondering if you would consider on adding this option.

Set “full name required” to force users to enter a name.
Set “username change period” =0 to disable them changing it.

I would give them 3 days to change it, otherwise you’ll end up needing moderators to correct spelling mistakes etc.


The thing is that when a user changes their usernames, if someone mention them before with the @ that doesn’t update. That’s why I prefer no username change.

That is no longer true thanks to the GDPR work that @gerhard did.


Are you saying that when someone changes their username all the mentions made before are going to update automatically?

Yes that is correct thanks to @gerhard.
