If the admin changes a users name for them, even after rebuilding everything in the database, it will still reflect that a post was made by the old username and not update it to the username. For example The original post is made by Bob. It displays as: Latest: The Title of the Thread Bob, Friday at 1:30 PM Bob has the admin to change his name to John. On site, it will still show: Latest: The Title of the Thread Bob, Friday at 1:30 PM However, if you open the thread it shows it is posted by John. After the name has been changed and the forums rebuilt, shouldn't it show: Latest: The Title of the Thread John, Friday at 1:30 PM ???
