Wow, I could see a lot of people getting pissed off about this... Though it doesn't apply to me, maybe you should let spaces be used for user names :\

Well this is utter bullshit.

I really, really don't see how people are responding "LOL GOOD MOVE TOM LOL U R RIGHT UNDERSCORES R GHEY LOL".

Look at the last 50 deposits page, about 25% of the people there have "invalid" names now.

This isn't some kind of joke, is it?

Yes. Awesome indeed. Damned people and their "I signed up early and I'm taking this name, even though I never plan on coming back."

It takes a while for the list to update.

As for me, I would like the name ScareCrow. The person who currently has it has made only two posts and is level 11. Just wondering if that name can become available.

Indeed. In the heat of the moment, it was a shame to see -Paradox- go, but actually, I think the name Paradox makes me look more original, because it proves that I am the ORIGINAL Paradox. Even though I wasn't, some other guy was. But he's non-existant, so who cares!

:P

RB-Bran sounds ok to me. :)

Lol, you're only level 6 and have 7 posts. I think you should get a lot more posts and get to at least level 9 before Tom can make sure you'll stay and be a regular, and take off Scarecrow, who deposited almost over 300 times. I think you should just make another name up in the meantime...

Exactly!

New name = New person.

;D

Well, not really like that to be honest. I'm still the same person, but I know what you mean.

That'd make sence, so then they won't get confused.

( You'll most likely get a script for this, or something. )

Yeah, they will get emailed.

One of the stupidest things ever, but i'm sure you have your reasons, and it's your website anyways.

As long as you or Wade gets rid of the guy with no posts or flash named "Canas", i'll be alright.
