If I were to change my user name, would it retroactively change my user name in posts I've made? If not, if you clicked "track", would it display the threads I've participated in? Thanks!

So Easy And Fun!

Drupal stores all of the 'posted by' data as your user number, not your username. The username is only stored in your actual profile. Because of this, updating the name in your profile causes the number to reference a different value.
