I have never noticed a name change from a user (until now) and wonder if this practice is widespread, or does it only happen for exceptional reasons?


After making a number of posts, a user builds up a reputation (not the green blobs) and their posts automatically have a certain amount of credibility (or lack of) with other users. It therefore becomes easier to know whether a post is worth reading or just generally skimming over.


I really can't see any advantages to name changes, after all, a user can have numerous user names, but at least with a zero/low post count (obviously this would rise over time, creating a reputation of it's own)there are no misconceptions as to the quality of advice/opinion being given.

There is no option to change a name, only signatures/profile/avatar.


I am wondering if there has been a mix up due to the technical problem recently?

I have no idea what you mean. Users can't change names.


The only names that we change are those where people have not read the rules and have their own name as a username and no longer want it to be that.
