We have to register on the discussion board/area51 separately. I dont mind to re register on JIRA for a 3rd time if thats the only way.
You're in the minority then. When JIRA was first introduced many in the community openly complained that they would have to register again. The compromise was to set up Crowd to replicate users from phpBB.com to JIRA. Even with the drawbacks this could cause, everyone was happy. Can't please everyone I guess. ;)

Yeah. i think there should be a field in the user row where his previous usernames are stored, When you try to access the older username you get redirected to the latest one. This way it solves the issue with the username from the MODX files and JIRA. And it is a nice feature to visit someones profile and see their previous usernames. Anyone thinks i should create a ticket or discussion topic about this?

That won't work correctly anymore when 2 users share the same name which could happen.

It couldnt... When the user would change his name, his old name would be added to his historic and it wont be free to reuse by others.
When they reserve a old nickname, phpbb would check if the user is registered and it will add the user to list or not...

I'm not sure what you think we can do to JIRA but it isn't much. It's a giant java cobweb and is a third party tool. While your suggestions are welcome modifying JIRA is going to be out of the question.

We are investigating this now. In future you can report this sort of thing by emailing website [at] phpbb [dot] com as the response would be swifter. :)

EDIT: This should now be resolved. If you have any further problems post here or email us on the address above. :)

Really, cant the old username be changed at all? The same way you can add a user to the Assignee field, the reporter could/should be changed to something else .....
