We’re getting a number of requests for this feature this year. They seem to be coming in one of two forms:
I used my child’s full first and last name and I don’t want it showing up on the feed
I want to change my username because I wanna
I’m manually handling the former with database queries (
UPDATE [Patron] SET [Username] = 'CaptainMal' WHERE [PID] = 90210) but it seems like most of them are the latter.
CR interface for changing a person’s username. Adds another potential responsibility for those running the program but would actually allow this functionality which right now requires a manual database query. This approach should probably send an email when it’s completed if the patron has a registered email address.
Patron interface for people to change their own usernames. Removes any workload from those running the program but is there a potential for abuse? I’m not sure. Possibly mitigated by only allowing
y(either time-based or total across the program or whatever).
