The way that Tom's post was worded, it sounds like these username requirements have to be inorder for the new system to work. I don't think it's just Tom's way of saying he hates underscores.

I'm to dumb to understand, how is it better if I take out the underscore voluntarily?

Does anyone realise hom many sig pics are going to need to be redone? I'm glaf I dropped out of the NGSM, it's going to be spam central when this is done... and what about the users who are ofline, and the put something like "-User_name-" in the name box of the log-in? Will it still log in and redirect them to their new name, or will they just get errors saying the name doesn't exist?

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...

Haha, oh yeah. Probably because it takes a while to update it. About 350 of those users were actually probably online. :P

the whole thing is no biggy ^^ just needed to tune up my sig with ms paint


I'm going to torture your boyhole with my meatwand.

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 16:28:49


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 =(.

Yea, so do I. I feel like a dick with the shitty hypen. It felt ghetto with the underscore.
This bites ass.

Possibly the most petty rule ever.

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

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 16:34:22


Ha, I cheat the system.
