View Full Version : Question: This one's got me confuzzled.

So, I see that people have gotten their name change history back. So I'm curious as to why I didn't end up getting mine. Yes, I've gotten a name change before (though I forget by who) so I'm just gonna guess it's a random bug or it got lost somewhere in the data logs.

There were a ton of people that wanted name changes. Chances are good that some of the posts were accidentally skipped. Just tell an admin.

...Syd, he's not talking about that ^^; He wasn't skipped during the name change process, he just lost his name change history (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showpost.php?p=4980837&postcount=440).

But the answer stands the same: just bug an admin. Chances are your name change history got lost during the process of disabling and reenabling it.

That's so weird. o_O; The data its self wasn't touched at all, there's no way yours could be lost while others are fine. The only thing we did was hide it from displaying.

I seriously have no idea why yours is gone, but if you wanna PM me with your old username I'll manually add it for you.

Maybe the name change system was being finicky and your name had to be changed manually. If it's changed from the Admin CP rather than our name change plugin, it doesn't record it in the automatic history. I used to leave usernotes when that happened but if your name only got changed (for the first time) in the last couple of weeks, we might not have bothered. *shrug* That's all I can think of anyway.

Nah, couldn't be that because my name change was months ago, before the forums started going crazy and not letting anyone on. I'll just say it's a random data bubble that popped. Thanks for trying to explain though guys ^.^

Edit: I haven't an idea how to bug things. PM sent though <.<
