Username change page said:
Usernames must be:
...
Alphanumeric - Only letters and numbers are allowed. No spaces, underscores, etc.
Why is this rule in place? If I was registering a new account I would be allowed use spaces or _ in my name so why not if I'm changing it. I was considering a username change but if I couldn't use the one I want there is no point.

Abby has changed her name to include underscores so idk what the story with all that is.

It's no longer possible to even register with such names.

This has been changed because of problems it's caused with the wiki.

Abby changed her name just before this was put into place.

[font="Calibri,Arial"]An _ is the mediawiki representation of a space. I can register a username with spaces and _ on wikipedia, which uses mediawiki.

I can see how User_Name and User Name would be the same name on the wiki but ban one or the other not both _ and space.

I can't see any other problems that would be caused.[/font]

I don't know the specifics, I just know that that's the explanation given to me.

One of the undisclosed obligations you must adopt as a moderator is to be irritatingly ambiguous, that or not say anything

You've gotta roll with it, otherwise it's one frustration after the other
