just a thought... I luv this site but hate seeing postings by people to "change your name" instead of an Answer, very frustrating for some one like me who has CTS( Carpel Tunnel Sysndrome). Why on earth don't the JAVARANCH site guys enforce the naming standard(First name + space + LAst name) during registration itself and avoid tons of posting by sheriff, ranchers etc. to correct username later... Let me put this more in line with our XML forum, we shd check for "well formed" UserName during user registration itself ;-) Again it reflects bad on the site as why the mecca of all Java sites is missing such a simple "Validation"???
Hi Ravi, We all feel your frustration. This "bug" should be fixed next month. It would be done sooner, but all the moderators and sheriffs are volenteers - so time is scarce sometimes. What is also frustrating is that people ignore the big huge bold letters that tell them how to properly register. If they could only follow the instructions, but oh-well... Thank you for your understanding and we are working on it. Matt
