This is a really simple mod that changes the max number of characters in a username from 18 to 40.

I know you can just change your name in your profile, but this speeds things up a little.

It happens. Most of my topics dealing with mods (or modfilegen) take a say or two for a reply after a new release.

As for your mod, you may want to check out Profile.pl to see if anything needs to be changed there, especially when changing the display name. Register.pl also needs to be changed if you want users to be able to register with longer names.
  

For my mods, check out my public notes.

You might be interested in my projects, or my forum, the Flying Kirby Pub.

Ah yes, I neglected Register.pl as my forum is running on admin-registrations only (it's a private forum) so i'll need to change that.

As for profile.pl, it doesn't seem that that needs to be changed, as there are no specific username limits, the limit only applies to how many characters you can register with.

I'll get another version up with the modded register.pl soon.

And mimit, with your 'sunglasses' idea, you mean like a similar thing to the extended member profiles mod, where you hover over their name and something pop's up?

Any or no bugs! I know its being used, I can see the download counter...

I know you are out there *shifty eyes*.

Anyways, currently working on mimits first idea, which displays the username under the display name on posts...
