Idea: Warning message at sign up for username character limit. Date: May 2012 Suggested by: iolite Defined by: cooljdude, iolite, karrott, StewieTunny Coded by: ACWWFreakazoid Released: August 2017 [1.15.0]
Outline: Currently when people create accounts they sometimes choose a username longer than 15 characters. The sign up page doesn't appear to offer a warning that 15 characters is the limit for a username, and Modmins sometimes see username change requests for names that have been truncated after the Member believed that they'd successfully joined with the chosen name.
At sign-up, there will not be a warning near the username text box to show that there is a 15 character limit.
