Hi,
There are some interesting changes coming in the new site and to make it possible we have to bring some changes to our username policy.

Rules:
  • Usernames can consist of lowercase and capitals (Ex: VijayBhatter)
  • Usernames can consist of alphanumeric characters (a-z A-Z 0-9) - Ex: VijayBhatter121
  • Usernames can consist of underscore and hyphens (Ex: Vijay-Bhatter or vijay_bhatter)
  • Cannot be two underscores, two hypens or two dots in a row
  • Cannot have a underscore or hypen or dots at the start or end
  • Length of the username to be between 4-15
  • Special Characters NOT allowed (like $ ~ ! # % ^ & *)

Primarily we want it for:
  1. This will enable us to have the @Mention feature in Comments / Forum Posts (Ex: @vijay)
  2. And also allow users to create their profile with friendly url (usernames) instead of numbers.
  3. Easy to type when we are sending PMs or searching our friends usernames.
So if you feel your username is not in line with the above rules we request you to change it asap. 

If you are facing any difficulty please let us know here so that I can take care of the same. It will affect less than 2% of our members.

= = = = = = =
Please check Update Profile page. We are now showing whether its VALID or INVALID username beside the Change Username Link.
= = = = = = =



Valid Usernames:

vijaybhatter
VijayBhatter
Vijay-Bhatter
Vijay_Bhatter
VijayBhatter121
ViJaY
VIJAYBHATTER



Invalid Usernames:

!~Vijay~!
-Vijay-
Vijay-
$Vijay$
Vijay--Bhatter
vijay__bhatter
vijay*bhatter
_vijay_


If you have any suggestions / feedback to the above rules do share with us.

For easy migration to the new username policy we have disabled the date check for members (in Username Change form) whose username is not as per the above rules.


Regards,
Vijay

Vijay bhai i think you should post a list  of 20 common error user nanes and some correct user names  and post them


Otherwise you would be telling all of us individually if our usernames are correct  LOL
