This discussion replaces the one originally started by Kallyfragillistic..., as the long user name was stretching out the "creator" column on the index.

Why not have the user name checked when setting up an account? This will save you the trouble of tracking down the loquaciousillistics among us.

I mean in the good old DOS days, if you couldn't say it in 8 characters, you never would.

YESSSSSSS! Hey, Tim.....?

Actually, that's already on Tim's list of things to do someday. That or just limit the "creator" and "last poster" columns to only show the first "X" characters, whatever "X" is that won't stretch out the columns. Unfortunately name length limits apparently aren't wiki-standard (so adding them takes a lot of tricks and extra work), and the discussion forum index, which is a very cool invention by the Intuit team, isn't all that easy to tweak.

and yet still I hold out hope...
