What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 128 Stack Exchange communities.

I have updated my profile on SO by changing my Display Name, and today i have tried again to change my Display Name, but it showing the following error message:

alt text

What it make sense ?? that error message is displaying after the user tried to change their name, (this is the case same as user jump into the well, after that you are saving their life and giving alert).

Instead, you should show the alert message while the user is changing their Display Name or updating profile.

It might be an idea to disable the input altogether when the display name can't be changed. –  Andy E Nov 12 '10 at 12:36
    
    
+1 for suggesting a warning PRIOR to changing display names. Rubbish design, and still no one does anything about it although it is a known problem. –  Mike Brind Dec 18 '12 at 21:36
