Please see attached screenshot. Both threads were started by Pavan_9 but somehow it is showing maverick2020. Or is this caused perhaps by a name change.

Looking at the member profile it shows the username as Pavan_9 but his full name as Maverick2020.

The user's 'real name' is used I think, which if you go into Pavan_9's profile show's maverick2020 as his real name.

Never noticed before. Non-issue then ;)

Actually I think you're right prit. The thread list for web programming shows a thread started by maverick2020 (real name of pavan_9) - whereas when I check threads I've started, they're by 'diafol', not my real name. Strange.

I think the main list is just a lil different and shows the name (or username if you didn't specify one) if you started the thread in question. The forum list appears to always show the username.

Ah. Still a bit odd. Not sure why real name should appear in the thread list.

Sounds like he did a name change.
