    This add-on gives your users the option to change their username. The administrator has multiple options to control what usergroups can change their username and how.

    Features:
    • Allow your users to change their username
    • Allows the administrator to set a cooldown period after changing a username until the user can change their username again
      • You can set this to no cooldown
    • Allows the username to set a maximum amount of times a usergroup can change their username
      • You can set this to unlimited
    • Allows the administrator to make it so moderators get an alert when a username is changed
      • You can decide whether normal moderators get an alert or only super moderators
    • Username history is shown on profiles
    • All user aspects of the add-on can be controlled through the XenForo permissions system
    • All aspects of phrases and templates can be controlled through the XenForo templates and phrases system
    • Store log of changes in the admin CP
    • Remove username change logs at the click of a button (or two, there's a confirmation)
    • 0 overhead queries on any page load

    Introduction
    Have you wanted your users to be able to change their usernames? What about limit them to a certain amount of times? What about add a 2 week interval between username changes in which the user can't change his username? Are you looking for something like this?

    Thank You
    Again, a huge thanks to Chris D. Great guy and helped with a few problems I encountered. There will come a time when he, too, gets sick of it :p

    It's definitely motivating to have people in the community that assist if there's a problem, and Apantic will surely be releasing free goodies as a way of saying thanks :)
