holy hell the screen got stretched by 3 forum posts OMGGGG THE SPAM GAAHH, the pain, the horizontal tool bar i hate thou, plz think of the possible wrist injuries !

those people arent spammers, and u guys wanna nuke them ?

long usernames dunt stretch video comment post, posts in a topic doesnt get stretched, the screen name would end with dots... after like 9 letters, only times it could stretch it is if u go to their profile page, or the "last post by:" part of the main forum page (which ive never seen get stretched before)

use a better excuse to nuke people, using the horizontal bar wont kill u

i cant believe u said that! they mean they will nuke the spammers! they wont(i think) take away acct! and why are u even trying? its not like u will get nuked AND u cant stop mods! just because theres 1(u) person that greatly hates this doesnt mean they will stop! we all already explained! and those people can make more accts and keep watching videos! theres no reason to nuke those long users! i mean seriously! just deal with it! stop whining and complaining because of the mods! why dont u actually appreciate they're work! without the mods cr would be crazy!

theres no spammer with a 35+ digit screen name, when did they say only the spammers would get nuked, theyre just saying if u got a long user name, ur gonna get a warning then gonna get deleted

why risk pissing off the people with long user names when they havent really done anything

and wats this talk about rules in the world before, have u noticed were all stealing anime/dramas here for free and u wanna lecture me on rules ?

Yeah, I think that's probably the best course of action right now since the price to keep a site on the internet is so high these days. But still i have my doubts. Can you change your screenname?
See, i have this friend who wants an sn like I_will_follow_you_until_the_end_of_time That's two characters over. I think I can convince him to put 'til' instead of 'until' and take out the lines, but I don't want his account to be deleted


It's impossible. No name-changes. :O

I'm sorry..I had to post here because that person's ^ username was stretching the forum and it was annoying me.
Thank you for putting a limit on the usernames. ^^

^ I wonder what usernames you were trying... if they had anime character names and the like, it's most probable that they would be taken. And now that you're using that name, how would you like me to refer to you? All? Fucking? Taken?

Sometimes, you have to be a little practical, you know. Isn't copying and pasting your user name such a hassle? I guess you probably have it easier compared to some users I've seen. Their usernames looked like they bashed their keyboard...


well, copy and pasting is MUCH easier then keep trying dozens of usernames.. think about it



Try a unique user name... I use only one username in all my accounts, the passwords are just different. Sometimes practicality can go a long way, you know. Overdoing it with such a long username is just odd, really. Sure, you're assured that no one has the username, but is it worth the hassle?

Some people just add numbers to the end of common usernames... this is one way to make it different. Adding additional symbols like an underscore, or a dash can also help make the user name a bit different.


@ mrtictac: I really don't understand where all your angst is coming from. You're getting so mad at something that doesn't even affect you directly, and now you're bringing in the ideas of crunchyroll stealing videos?

Please, don't veer off topic with examples such as these that try to make yourself self-righteous. I've tried to accommodate your rants through PMs, but please, you can always discuss this in a respectful tone. You tell me that you are concerned for CR because you feel that the Mods are becoming more like overlords, enforcing strict policies and the like, and yet you answer moderators, even some other users' reasons, with harsh sarcasm and unreasonable rudeness.

I don't think there is any way to discuss things with you as you are now. I highly recommend you calm down for a while and please, refrain from offensive posts.

Just DELETE em ALLLL *Evil Laugh* lol jk whell people who have 30-35 character usernames are just plain weird.. I think you should check their personal info and cr points and everything before you auctually delete em because they might've had the acc for an year or they mightve worked really hard to upload stuff on that acc. okay

my posts were polite at first, but people responding to me with equal rudeness and sarcasm, wat ive said so far is basically true, but instead of debating the issue, people post something like if u dunt like it then leave and preaching to me about rules in the world

dunt get all mad cause i said something about were stealing free anime (i didnt say CR was stealing or that the site is wrong) it was just to illustrate a point from wat anzgrace and sousuke said about rules/anarchy in the world

everyone is thinking that these users are spammers, theyre not, but they could if they get set off and get annoyed by their acct getting deleted

the mods are saying that the main problem is the page getting stretched, the page is only getting stretched if 1. u go to their profile page, and 2. (possibly, but ive never seen it) (2). the page could get stretched from the "last post by:" part of the main forum page

and if it does stretch it, u just have to use the tool bar, or click on another link not to see that particular page anymore

it would have been fine if u just said "future user names with 35+ digits shall be advised and warned to change their name before facing deletion"

but instead u want to delete past/present accts who have never even caused the site page to get stretched in the first place

should either revise the rule to future accts and leave the present accts alone

@mrtictac: 90% of the users in question have 0 CR points and absolultely nothing on their profile. I think only 3-5 have more than 10 CR points and something actually on their profile (one has about 300 points). I will be careful with those people but the rest can easily make a new account. All in all this will only affect about 100 accounts out of the 1.8+ million registered accounts.

So don't make a big deal out of nothing. The limit should have been put in place to begin with.

so why are u even mentioning the page getting stretched

when 90% of those havent even done anything at all

seeing the page get stretched one day by 1 post, then suddenly deciding to delete mass accts, isnt that making a big deal out of nothing

isnt it better to just leave the present accts alone, theyre not even doing anything, u dont need to do any work at all, should just focus on the future made accts who have potential to do harm

I know, Thanks for bringing this up. Sometimes in chat, there are people with really long usernames that stretch the screen. There are no needs for people with really long usernames and are hardly active. They don't have any points, no favs, and nothing about them. What's the point in the account?

Actaully, there are two sides to this arguement. Though I agree with the moderators, that long user names do kinda stretch the screen. And that there isn't enough money available for everyone to have huge usernames. I must also agree with mrtictac. They're not much of them. And All The Fucking Usernames Are Taken also has a point. I too, have had thate problem, where one username after the other was unavailable. Half of them were not anime character names? Once I even trie 66666 and that was taken........You usernames kind of have to be familiar with your firends or they won't recognize you and there's this problem of finding each other on the net.
