Hello. I would like to notice, that although this forum let the user to change his 'name', it is not working 100% correct. All 'old' posts are being changed, so the name of their author is changed, but the part 'This message was edited 2 times. Last update was at <<date>> by XXX YYYY', where 'XXX YYYY' points to the 'old' name of the user. You should definittly change it!.

I'll add it to the backlog of items that we would like our volunteers to work on. Unfortunately this list grows faster than our volunteer staff finds spare time to work on issues, so I cannot give an estimate on when (or even if) this will get fixed.

That text is stored as part of the post. The JForum software doesn't consider it a username. It's not really a bug; it's more of a design decision from the JForum team.

Easy solution: don't edit posts .
