Comment(by r-a-y):

 Hey Andy,

 The reason why I'm using the global variable is because BP doesn't seem to
 have a "username" function to return.

 BP seems to have everything but that! (ID, display name)

 So since I needed the global $current_user for the username on a
 particular page, I decided to use it for the ID as well.

 I guess I could use:

 $user_info = get_userdata(1);

 $theUsername = $user_info->user_login;
 $theUserID = $user_info->ID;

 Would using get_userdata() be more beneficial than using global

 Unless I'm overlooking a very, simple function to return the username (I
 probably am!) ;)
