I know we can name change. It's fine for permanent or seasonal namechanges.
If you name change for a particular thread, say for sensitive issues, you're a bit stuck. You can either only post on that thread, or you have to namechange each and every time you post on different threads.
It would be fantastic if the name you chose was fixed for each thread, so that I could namechange to post as 'chosenname' on a particular thread, then switch back. Every thread I posted on would post as 'lougle' except the one on which I posted as 'chosenname', which would then always use 'chosenname'.
It would be really useful for people who may like to post in different topics but may not like their postings to make a 'picture'.
Can see where you're coming from, and since MN systems identify the same user whatever the name, would hope they consider this at some point (once they have fixed the outstanding private messages problem I've banged on about for almost 30 months!)
Mmm I see your point. Perhaps the restriction could be just for sensitive topics?
I'm not that fussed about the fixed namechange thingy. I'm more fussed about the fact that if I wanted to post something delicate, so namechanged, that stops me using the rest of MN unless I keep NCing back and forth.
