Keep short history of user display names - Meta Stack Exchange

Add a tab in the Profile for 'Name History'.

Where is this? Can someone screenshot this? Thanks!

  • Well, if you are after a particular name, you could find out what the ancestors were using web-archive, for instance (not guaranteed, but that should work)

You can't, unless you're a ♦ moderator:

Screenshot of User History in the moderator tools, with the filter "Edit DisplayName" applied. Two events are displayed, with the date and the username changed detailed (from user5 to user4)
