      Description

      I'm not sure if this is a bug or is done on purpose to preserve the history of Forums messages, but after you change a user's name, the Forum's old messages still show the user's old name. We had a user complain that they wanted their new name to appear in the old messages

      taking a look at the table mfr_message_t, it looks like the 'author' column saves the user's name there. That table also has a column, created_by, which stores the user_id, why not just use that column to look up the name?

      or is there a specific reason to keep a history of the author's original name in the message?
