I will work with contributing users (such as Flash authors, Audio Portal contributors, high ranking users) to give them the best names possible.

So people like me are forced to use something else because the same alias without dashes and hyphens are already used? Dammit.

Yes that explains everything to me completely thanks for taking the time to write all that. I will now never complain about this again.

Awesomeness. And just for the record, your complaining about it was nowhere near as annoying as a lot of other complaints I read last weekend, so don't worry about it.

Tom isn't committing wholesale slaughter.

Old accounts aren't being insta-deleted, their NAMES (such as "steve" or "john" or "mike," names that other people MIGHT like to have but can't because someone who signed up in 1999 or 2000 took and then never bothered to use their accounts for anything...)...

Anyway, the NAMES of these old accounts are just being reset. To something like steve0001 or something, so ACTIVE users can have the good names without -s, _s, numbers, etc. etc.

Good ol' plaintext name with no need for symbols or numbers all over the place.

Just a question. Why did you take away internal underscores? I can understand getting rid of doubles but what's the problem with a single underscore, 'cause mine looks kinda dorky with a hyphen.

Because, he's making us our own personal folder! aka http://www.snakemaster-13.newgrounds.com would be real in the next update!

Speaking of that, Tom, would you actually make that many subdomains, or would you just use php to mask it?
