Spaces in user names

Hello,

Got another one for you. It's not an issue for me, but just something to put in your bug queue: my pen name normally has a space, and it works fine; however, the forum side of the site does not like it, so when I want to peruse and post here, I have to replace the space with an underscore (probably because my pen name originally had an underscore many many many years ago :p). Not an issue for me as it's not a big deal to switch back and forth, but I imagine it makes for a wierd edge case.

That sounds super annoying! We'll look into it, thank you :)

I'm going to make it weirder: I have never encountered this issue trying to log in with my username and I, too, have a space. The plot thickens!

We've fixed this issue and updated your forum username to allow for the space :D - Thanks for reporting this!
