    A quick question, not overly pressing, but...

    I was just checking the "Users Online" page, and while we can find everyone under the ALL button, how are users with names beginning with special characters treated under this function (e.g., Dashy, anybody starting with - or _, )?

    Consider this your punishment for trying to be creative with your usernames. Wasn?t JediDude5 good enough? Was DarthDooku69 beneath you?

    You brought this on yourself.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been brought up before.

    I guess if you knew exactly who you were trying to find, you could find them with the user search tool, couldn't you? Their profile would tell you if they were online or not.

    Of course that doesn't really solve the problem though.

    I asked zerosleep to take my underscore and replace it with a space. He said I was the 2000th person thats asked, and he does one a day. I so cant wait for August 15th 2008!

    I can tell it's just digging inside you to the point where it hurts like hell, but I'm sure that Mr. Sleep has a life nowaways and doesen't really care too much about making internet nerds feel just a little bit better about their pointless lives by changing their usernames in such a barely noticable degree.

    Hah! You really think zerosleep has a life? I sincerely doubt it. I bet he could sleep all day if he wanted to. :oops:

    Considering that he has about a zillion different IGN boards to help keep maintained, I doubt changing characters is high on his priority list, regardless of whether he hs a life, or not.

    Better send another PM his way and ask for your dash to be changed to a space, since you don't have an underscore;)

    I asked ZS this and this is the reply I got earlier today:

    "They should be sorted first, but if not 's a bug and I'll log it as such."
