old user names

Postby Toby B. » Tue Jun 25, 2002 3:41 am

MoboCop, I have a question. When a forum member changes their user name, is there ANY WAY to block those old names? I know with aol screen names when deleted or changed those old names are locked out for a period of 6 months.

Well datektrader, I may have made a mistake. But AOL does indeed have a "hold" on old screen names wether it is 6 months or 6 years.

I can almost get one of my old AOL screen names back if the period was 6 years. Of course I won't use AOL as I hate it, but AIM yes.
