I think it's been established that weird symbols will not be allowed in usernames.

We've already stated that symbols will not be allowed for usernames. Replies to this thread asking for them will be deleted.

Goldair, I removed the posts with symbols in them because (a) they don't work in all browsers any way, and (b) we've already said we're not allowing them, so they are not needed in the thread.

This question might have been answered, but i didn't find it so i guess it's ok if i post it 'again'.

My question is about the old inactive names/accounts? What are you going to do with them, are you going to 'free them' so they will be available to all others? And of course i don't mean if you're inactive for a short period of time, i mean of course peoples that have just created an account and didn't do anything else, for long time ago, 1-2 years maybe. I personally think they are just 'wasting' up all the cool names.

Thank you! :>

If a username is taken by a user, even one that is inactive, the username cannot be used by anyone else. Usernames of banned and deleted accounts are also considered taken.

Patrick is correct. If the user was ever active, even users who register but never validate their account by clicking the URL we send via Email, will have their username reserved.

If you don't change your username, your username will be taken and nobody will be able to "steal" it.
