User name should not be an e-mail address

Hi, I think this may be new since you initially signed up as a member to TaxAlmanac: the new user page now recommends that you do not use your e-mail address as your user name. You're exposing your e-mail address to spammers when you use it as your user name, as it gets shown on multiple pages on the boards. Also, e-mail addresses tend to be longer than the average user name, and long user names without any spaces can negatively affect the format of the discussion boards.

There are two ways to switch to a new user name:

  1. You can just start anew with a different user name, and abandon this one. Log out of this name, go back to log in again, and click the Create an Account link, and go through the steps from there, including updating your new user profile to provide some information about your level of experience/background as a tax professional.
  2. You can request a name change from TDoyle (moderator) or from me. With a name change, your user profile and all of your user history will carry over to the new name, and all discussions you participate in from now on will show only the new, shorter, name. To do this, leave a message on my talk page (or on Tim Doyle's talk page) with the name you'd like to change to. You might want to include a few choices, as if the name already exists we can't change yours to it, obviously.

Name Change (length)

I am so glad you're going to change your name. It's better for everybody that way!

That said, names with more than 10-12 characters can create problems with the forum index display - similar to what happens with long e-mail names - especially if they've got capital letters included (as your suggested new name, TaxesOnWheels, does). Anything longer than about 10 lower case characters plus the required upper case character at the beginning can start to stretch out the discussion forum index columns and compress the "topic" column. With a name the length of TaxesOnWheels it might not be too terribly bad, so if you've got your heart set on that new name, let's use it.

But if you have any alternatives in mind that would be shorter, that would be better.
