Plug the Change User Name

Are you good at?

I have a suggestion:
He can add a plug-in to create the user name by paying a small fee to change automatically

Example: Replace username vbulletin plugin that has been corrected

Hi, welcome to Area51. :)

This board is about the development of the core phpBB software. Here discussion takes place about potential additions to the core phpBB software. What you are suggesting is to have people pay for using certain functionality. I think it would be save to say that something like that will never be included in the free, open-source product that phpBB is.

What you should be looking for is an extension to the core product, and for that you're in the wrong place. On our main board, we have an Extensions Requests forum, where you can place this request and await if people would like to create such an extension.

Thanks for your interest in the project though, and good luck!
