    I tried to search, so I hope this hasn't been asked and answered already...but could the length of handles be lengthened somewhat? My name under my avatar now looks like "BoyAreMyArmsTir-ed" and others appear to be having similar difficulties. If not, can we have a grace period to make adjustments during the beta testing period?
     
  2. It's really not the length of your handle, it's how you use it luv ;)

    I second the request for a slightly larger box





    <------ here

    to avoid wrapping of my beautiful handle.

    I thought you were thinking of changing your handle to Bammy, BAMAT or something similar. [​IMG]

    Whatever MP decides then I guess they should have a limit of how long it should be so it fits the box properly.

    FT has the opposite problem - the box widens to fit the name (and programs) and takes up a ridiculous amount of real estate on pages where some members have posted.

    I think that's probably just what people with small handles say to feel better. ;)

    At a recent FT DO, I marvelled at being seated near two FTers with 3 character handles (msv and sy7). Such brevity in prolific posters must have cumulatively saved years of typing....

    The said, I do like BoyAreMyArmsTired, although as the punchline to an ancient one-liner, I'm sure it should be BoyAreMyArmsTired...Boom!Boom!

    I wonder it there could be an option, either for the user to select font or for handles longer than 15 characters to drop two point sizes; that would let two or three more characters fit in.
    One problem is that not all systems have the same fonts, so when you try to define font in a web page you don't always know what will happen.

    Well that wasn't directed particularly at YOU...I was just speculating...in general terms. :)

    Maybe your handle could be BoyAreMyArmsTiered, in honor of all the status tiers?
    Or BoyRMyArmsTired, in honor of texting grammar.
