The bad side is that most people who use underscores or hyphens use them because the alias without them are aleady taken.

Congrats to him... or should I say.. Him =D

The requests are a constant stream... It will be interesting to query the DB tonight and see how many names are now valid. Before making the change, here is what we were up against:

Funny how I mailed before the post, when I wanted to re-switch my name =)

1176: users that start with -
1251: users that end with -

Sorry I won't do it again =(

The longer this change has been, the more I like it =)

Tom, if you can see all the usernames with hyphens and underscores in their usernames like that, doesn't that mean you can see all the usernames with Clock in them? :O

That would be really interesting to see!

I just realized that some of the users in my favorite artists list have underscores.

Sucks to be them. XD

Yeah, I'm thinking I'm back.

Thats actually less than i thought. Bummer about the underscore one though. Lets hope most change their alias themselves.

Just now it was 393 again. Wanted to see if it would go up, so I could get a screenshot of something good. :D

of course, you can just pull them out with WHERE username LIKE '%Clock%'

I'm guessing though, that this is something that the NG public probably can't do though. :P

I don't really see the point in users who aren't affected by the change getting new names. If Tom has no problem doubling his work by fulfilling those requests while trying to accomplish the main goal of removing the "illegal" names, then sure, go for it.

It seems like giving away replacement items for a defective item, and other people just coming along and taking the replacements even though they never initially had the item. Or maybe people who weren't affected by a hurricane going to get hurricane relief money.


The point is... Don't lose your dinosaur.

I can understand the no hyphens and no underscores at the beginning or ends of names, or two in a row, but honestly is there a point in eliminating underscores altogether? i don't see a point to it.

Yup, I'm on there. If Newgrounds hits a higher amount today, chances are I'll still be here.

Wait, I have to go and have a shower... I'll just hope it's not between now and then. :D

It looks better if you ask me. :P Seriously, underscores look ugly in most cases.

But there's not actually that many people online. It's the same number as usual, but everyone's changing their username and because the online list takes a while to update, it shows both sets of usernames.

If you have a pm buddy list you could check all names you type out and it will say if it exists or not.

Yeah, but that won't give me an accurate or precise number of usernames that have Clock in it...
