Well, since hyphens between individual letters are still kosher I might as well overload myself on them.

My name is EvanStone.

You will refer to me as such or I'll crack your head open with my level 20 rusty pipe.

Because you can volunteer to change your name.

Otherwise they will be running a script that will change your name for you eventually.

Blast it, I tried to change to -Tangent- a little while ago, before this thread was even up, I think. Oh well, at least I'm not confused anymore...

Okay, I have barely been around much lately, but I don't understand why this is necessary. The changing of inactive users and that are great ideas, but i don't see the problem with hyphens and underscores.

And yeah, I don't feel like reading through 23 pages, hence why I ask despite it probably being asked and answered already. Sorry.

It's because the new profiles are said to going to use a subdomain-like address like: pure_lionheart.newgrounds.com

That would function correctly because underscores are not valid for domain names, and browser compatibility would be off and I'm not sure about mod_rewrite compatibility but I don't think it would work either.

AUGH, * NOT function correctly

That's what happens when you try to type at 2:35 in the mernin.

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-10 02:36:03


An inactive user purge, if it happens, would be a good thing. It'd help people get a more accurate view of how they stack up in terms of stats...

I mean, if you have 1 blam or protect, you're pretty much in the top tier of Newgrounds members statistically. It'd be nice to reduce that oddity, as well as get a more accurate view of the current NG population.

Ahhh, I see. Thank you very much for yourquick and helpful response. :-)
I barely know anything about these new profilesor layouts or levels or anything. But then, I'm not very active anyway, so I guess I don't have to. ;-)
