( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

On a whim I decided to put together all of the threads that I could find on usernames used here on PerlMonks. There was a little duplication of topics, so why not just have a clearinghouse of all threads about the subject?

The first place to go to read about usernames is Create A New User. There are two threads about username length limits: Username limits and Username length limit. There are two threads about white space in usernames: Erraticate usernames with white space and Forged usernames!. The are two threads about changing usernames Username Changing and Can I change my username?. Curiosity on some new usernames is a thread about spam usernames, and Forged usernames! is also about forged usernames. Name Space is about what users' usernames mean and from wence they came with the My username is... poll to also let us know why a username was chosen.

If I missed a thread or three, please let me know. I was also on the fence about the spelling of username, is it one word or two? :)

  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
