Ragnar - you can change your name now. The other guy hasn't been online since 2010 so I renamed him to Ragnar no 2.

Jackie - If someone changes their name, I'll make it put them into the moderator's queue to be checked just like if they update their profile.
If you like, I could maybe make a part of the site for events admins where you can add members who have paid for a ticket. Like a clearer attendance list which also exports their real name, email address etc from the database. Then it will link to their ID so if they change their name you'll still have the correct one when you print the list at the start of the event.
Maybe you can send me an example of what it is you currently use so I can understand the problem a bit better

We've just had a member join that needs to change their username to comply with terms and conditions.
As an experiment, I've directed the new member to the change name facility on the new site.
Hoping it goes through smoothly... Wink

Boss Man i think adding them to the moderation queue is a good idea, hopefully anything untoward can be picked up quickly.
I use a spreadsheet for keeping attendees details on, its proved the easiest option.
I appreciate the offer of an extra list linked, think that would be useful, for others as well as myself.
I tend to keep attendees lists for ride outs, camps, nights out etc, more for emergency purposes should anything occur.
I seem to be in the minority of folk who have reservations about this, so i'll sit back and shut up and see how it fairs.

Jackie - you're concerns are real though. I'm certainly not shrugging them off. I want to find a solution for you.

Let's see how it goes. If it really become a problem for you then I'll do something about it.

I think for now it's a good idea to also start using user ID's in your spreadsheet. Hover your mouse over anyone's photo/name and you'll see their ID. Or use the admin menu you have access to. Nobody can change their ID number

I think its prob best to see how it goes and if and when issues occur i'll flag them up :) and then see what solution we can come up with.
Appreciate i may be being over cautious lol
