Description

Some users on this system have one name as their username, which isn't really helpful as there are other users with that same name, which requires me to mouse-over their name to see who it really is. But in comments this isn't possible at all, as names are not links there.

It would be fine if I had a preference to turn it off, but there doesn't seem to be one. It looks like there's only a global setting: https://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/7339

I don't know what other users think, but at least for me the old behavior of usernames-only was much better.

I agree. It is easier to identify a person in Trac by his nickname as this is what we see on forum and irc.

+1 to usernames. If someone changes their screen name to the one of a well-known dev, much trolling could happen.

Added the option to the ini and restarted Trac. Looks like it is indeed working.
