Default Usernames

Is it possible to change it back to the way it used to be in the profile, showing both the username and forum name? 'Cos every time I come across a name I don't recognise, I always have to check it by start writing out a PM, to see who it really is (if I know them), or if it is someone I don't know at all from the last time I was here.

I'd agree... the old system is easier for keeping track of good/bad posters who change their "cosmetics" frequently.

So add another field in the profile summary view that says "Username:" underneath "Name:"?

Summary - Chaos Undecided
[hr] Name: Chaos Undecided
Posts: 699 (2.608 per day)
Position: Shas'vre
Karma: +6/-0



Change it to look like it used to:



Summary - Kre Mont Re <--- this bit used to display username
[hr] Name: Chaos Undecided
Posts: 699 (2.608 per day)
Position: Shas'vre
Karma: +6/-0



Or else add another field if you think that would be better, I don't mind.

Hmm.. How about:

Summary - Chaos Undecided (Kre Mont Re)

That might be better than changing it back to the old method because, although sometimes annoying, it is more logical to put the display name in the summary, not the username.
