in reply to Username limits

I think that we should not limit the length, but not allow "_"s. Since spaces can be used there isn't a need for "_"s, and if spaces are used instead the name will line wrap.

    Which brings up issues of /msg'ing and other bits of unpleasantess. I don't see the need for usernames that long. Others have made good points, and I think a longer limit would probably be better; 20 would most likely be acceptable.

      anyone tried /msg to Buckaroo Buddah? Have a little trouble? I'll get to that in another post.

               have you tried spelling it Buddha?
