This hasn't been much of a problem in the past but when people post on the site and have a long username, they stretch the page in a very annoying way. Since we don't really have a built in character limit for the usernames, I have made an unofficial limit of 3-35 characters for a valid username. Having a username that is between 30 and 35 characters is really pushing it.

So as of now, we will not allow people to have usernames longer than 35 characters. All users who currently have usernames longer than that will be sent a PM warning before having their account deleted.


I'll support this, because what's the point of making long user names? They're meant be kept short to remind your friends who you are.

Yeah long usernames are so unattractive. It just means that you want attention. And it makes the forum look longer and abstract I think.

I support the mods in this, i've been in chat where it's really annoying when a user comes in with a HUGE name, IE the pokemon guy and there's another guy, but i think he got nuked, he was a spammer...
There's also been NUMEROUS guys come in with names like:

;kjahsdfpiuahywet ;kjcand;kfjhaskldjghkasjdhfgksjdhfglkjhsdfjkghslkjfhglksjhrglkjehsrg

Becuase they were pissed of that they got nuked... Well, all i have to say to that, it, you got nuked / banned for a good fucking reason... DEAL WITH IT.
If you dont' like this new rule... TOO BAD!
The mods are making a choice that would better the community of CR.. I think Basou's SPOT ON in making this choice.
I hope all the mods follow through with it.

I agree with S_j_b, That's what the headline in your profile is for.
Not everyone can have NARUTO or BLEACH for thier username.
THink OUTSIDE THE BOX!
If your name is George Filmany, and you like bleach and naruto, DO something like
GFBleaNARU! There ya go!
Or deal with Naruto6739827
Just get CREATIVE with it!
Maybe a mixture of your favorite characters?
Like: NaruSask
or: IchiSado
who knows.
It's just a way for people to identify you. Period.

^^; lol. Well that would certainly be amusing. Normally whenever someone does that, it usually means that's the person's favorite pairing rather than their favorite characters.

Kind of crude don't you think? ~Just an example: They could have their account for a long while, then all of a sudden get a message saying its gonna be deleted.~ Unless I'm missing something where you can change your Username. I don't think thats kinda fair.

I agree.



From a practical standpoint, it doesn't make sense to have an account with such a long username. Just by looking at these accounts (if you've seen one), it more or less looks like it was created just for the sake of spamming (or leeching). They usually have no avatar, hardly any CR points, nothing placed in their About me! section, and if they're not recently made, they're pretty old, so it looks like no activity has happened much with regard to the user that created the account.

And in many respects, it isn't a big deal for profiles like this to get deleted. They might as well just make a new one, since there's very little to begin with before it was deleted.

And as with what Azngrace said, we do take into consideration several things before nuking an account. Sending them a PM, for one thing, is one of the measures we do to see if the account really is active. Plus, it's better to warn them in advance than just nuke them with no warning whatsoever.


EDIT:
Here's a prime example:

i think if certain mods just get too picky with things, it can only cause a negative effect on some people, (i dunno about the chat room) but have u ever seen the page get stretched? was it such a bad thing, did u hate the extra calories u had to use to scroll the horizontal bar,

the only possible page stretch by a long user name is the "last post by:" part of the main forum pages (which ive never seen get stretched anyways)


u used Andy88888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888888
as an example, and that dude hasnt even posted in the forum/guestbook/video comment, nothin, so wat did he do wrong

the nuked people could just get angry and spam/do harm on the site

should just leave them alone instead of trying to be the boss and decide for them

The mods at Crunchy Roll only want this site to be enjoyable for everyone and if thatt means some rules need to be enforced, the better. Anyone with a long name, with lots of letters as well only made the account to spam etc. No one is forcing you to stay at Crunchy Roll, if you don't like this new rule, then simply leave.

This rule isn't unfair or unjust, in fact it will help Crunchy Roll get rid of some of the spamers and such. User names aren't THAT hard to think of, all you have to do is use a little creativity. But hey, the choice is your, either follow the rule or go to another site.

.......uhh if he didnt do anything then that means he forgot his thing! who would have nothing?! so what if he gets nuked! it wont affect him cause he didnt do anything to the acct. he could make another one!

I agree with Azngrace, rules are here for a purpose. Without them, we would live in chaos and total Anarchy. Sooner or later in life, you'll have to understand life isn't all fun and games. Letting a person be the boss of him is one thing, but letting that person do as he pleases is a one other subject.

There is no one stopping anyone from leaving, its their choice. You want to go to a unregulated site, good luck. All I will say is; good luck finding a site that actually keeps itself up to date daily with videos and has a lot more anime and other videos than most other sites.

Isn't nuke..IP ban? He has to change his IP or go on another computer if he wants to make another one..IF nuking is IP ban.
