Is there a way to tell whether posters have changed their name?
« on: January 20, 2021, 07:50:27 pm »
Please forgive me if this has been answered before, but having been here since 2002, and taken some holidays, many poster's usernames are now new to me. However I suspect many are friends of old, perhaps those with whom I have travelled round Europe. However if they have a different username it seems impossible to tell whether they are the same person. Is there a way to see their old usernames?

Hi Reeves mate, it does happen but only Mods can change a name and usually its for a good reason and reserved for RAWK Supporters. Usually it's evident to other posters and Mods don't indicate their previous name. Sometimes people want to change their persona for good reason. All name changes are recorded on the posters profile.

This may not help you identify anyone but it indicates that it happens occasionally.

PM literally every single member on RAWK asking said Q, if they reply in the affirmative then you'll know if you travelled with them or not.
