Admin,

Please put a limit on the user name character length that can be used when registering an account.

For example, this user "FishinDuoJR....silentfishin (www.fishsniffer.com/cgi-bin/forumsyabb/YaBB.pl?action=viewprofile;username=silentfishin)" makes the Bass board difficult to read the titles of the threads.

I vote for a limit. That is a valid observation Badger. ;)

No offense against the user but I vote as well for a limit.

It's strange because this user name is just as long but it puts it on two lines and doesn't squeeze the subject...hmmm.

That is because "brendensboatAKA StriperViper" has a space in the user name allowing it to wrap, and "FishinDuoJR....silentfishin" does not have any spaces in the name.

Does the Admin read this forum? Or is it better to email him/her?

It's best to use e-mail if you want to contact the admin.

I just looked through all my admin tools and do not find where I can limit characters in user names, but I am researching the yabb forums now.

You can thank the user. Once he realized what the long name was doing he changed it voluntarily. Thanks FishinDuoJR. :)
