Re: Protest Thread to *REMOVE* Displayname Field From Xoops...
Let me add my voice here..
1: After having considered this some time, I have to agree that the Displayname does not give the Wanted raised security. At least not as long as the admins or HR department of the site are not able to get notifications when users change their 'personality'.
As already mentioned, I would like to back these initiatives:
- Explain why it's there!
- Make it optionally
- Add notifications to admins (optionally) on change
- Disable the users login for X minutes if login attemt failes Y times within N minutes. Default: 120, 3, 20
2: If people like to make it non-editable right now, you could do many things:
- Make it a copy of username in the register form (Use JS to copy the value to uname on keyup in name) and make it a hidden field.
- Use CSS to make it non-editable on the client side.
And there might be others.
I think the world right now show us that the best way is Possitive, construktive dialog...
Let there be room for us all!
