I'm not changing mine...for the sentimental value...

It's like a memorial to the "_" and "-UserName-"

So i can say in like 3 years "Remember when everyone was "-"something or "_" something?"

"ahhh those were the good days"
Or something like that...

Excellent idea. Usernames with hyphens or underscores at the beginnings and/or ends looks incredibly stupid. Next we should get rid of usernames with the letter "X" at the beginning and/or end of their names.

Don't people know that putting an "X" or multiple "X's" at the beggining or end of an alias means that you're emo? Seriously.

The underscore is the real killer... If we only had to remove leading and trailing dashes, this would be much easier. :)

I miss the underscore =(.

Possibly the most petty rule ever.

What harm does having one underscore to seperate two words do?

Nothing at present, but that's not the issue. You guys are all saying, "Well, I don't see what good it does". This isn't about the now, it's about the future and what these changes mean with respect to what we'll be doing in the future that's important. Just because you can't throw a best guess as to why these name restrictions are being put into practice, doesn't make the reason for making the restrictions invalid...

Okay Tom. Even though I already knew that, one guy was complaining about that this morning at Flash forum.
