As designed "[Name] likes this" does not reflect username changes


Well-known member
Just noticed this: the "___ likes this." message doesn't change when a user's name changes. For example, looking at this post, it shows that "Abomination likes this," but his username is now Dean, obviously. It still links to the correct profile, so it's not a big issue, but it's not entirely correct.

This has been mentioned several times before.

Essentially it was decided to not code for this eventuality, I'll see if I can find the thread(s).
