Solved Username-Letter / Character Count restricted

Post by bigugly11 on April 20th 2012, 3:32 pm

Guest's Username is restricted to 8 number of characters or letters.
Can the number increase to at least 20?

Hello,

Usernames can have up to 25 characters I guess, I tried it on my own forum and on your forum too ( http://easttnforum.forumotion.com/ ) , when I got to the register page, I filled up the username field and I can write up to 25 characters. Make sure he's not trying to insert codes on his/her username.

I'm afraid it isn't possible to raise the limits.

Hi,

No it is not possible to increase the limit, even for guests.
They are restricted to a low limit to prevent them from using ridiculous names.
