Full names

Postby Drax » Jul 17th, '11, 20:50

I think this topic has probably come up before, but is there any chance of lengthening the display for user names in posts? It seems around 7 or 8 characters, the name gets lopped off with a "..."

The only reason I bring this up is that I've recently seen more than a few posts where people are getting called by their lopped off names...

Would clearly be a "nice to have" rather than a "gotta fix" sort of thing...

Agreed, 100%. This bothers me a LOT!

I will (again) request this to tech support ...

Cool, I didn't mind much being called by the cut-off username, though it's definitely nice to see the full thing. Thanks!
