Look here and see my comments in thread....

Well, should we have a username restriction?

Or hyphenation?! :eek: :eek: /me imagines the code havoc! :p

this is a really cosmetic issue - not one I care about, but I don't think it came up before despite names like napalminthemorning - leastways I never noticed it before...

I'm sure this has been mentioned before. I believe nothing came of it, thus, it must be fine as is :D

It's not so much a big deal, and if you put an image in the post itself, if it's wide enough it can cause the same thing.

IMO, putting a restriction on usernames short enough to not cause that issue takes away a member's uniqueness or creativity, which we don't need.

From what I have seen, people like that don't post all that much, so I don't see it being a constant issue.

Either way, it only effects their post not the entire page/thread. I also agree it would be much worse if it caused a new line.

And what if they wish to use their actual name? Like, Zorba Yannopaparopolus. Then what, we shrink it to Yanni?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
