I just want to capatilize the "B" in my username. Will anyone be able to steal my name if it's the same one without the capitalized letter?

Let's test the importance of capitalization by searching for bunniecorps, then the capitalized verison.

bunniecorps.

Bunniecorps.

They both go to the same profile (if my links worked), but the capitalization is different.

It's definatly true. There is no possibility someone will steal your username unless it's one of those regular ones like abc123 or hi123.

What do you mean by symbols? Like these: &*#?
I think it should be kept the way it is, because it starts looking messy when everyone has $%^'s in their name. :p

Those are messy, so it would be safe to keep symbols out of usernames. However, if the admins want to allow symbols, that's fine, especially if they have a way to control it.

We've already said no to this several times. Usernames will only contain letters, numbers, and maybe an underscore '_' character.

Could there be a possible filter for usernames that copy other user names

Ex:

eaglepaw

eagle_paw

eaglepaw229

and so on...
