Swap Login Names? #71491

I don't think this has ever come up before. I have two brothers that want to swap login names. Will downloading their member files and swapping the login names and then FTPing back up cause any problems or is there something else that should be done?

Couldn't they just change their publicly displayed name? That seems like it would be alot easier...

At the very least you'd have to change memberslist.cgi as well.

But I too vote no - that's what PDNs are for.

I know it's silly request on their part but I don't mind doing it because they're active members. (Just as long as it doesn't hose the board.)

Well, I tried it and found out this is NOT something that should ever be attempted. Thank goodness for backups. LOL
