    Guild McCommunis and Hoverlord Nadria* both want more characters for their usernames in the shoutbox, and so do I.

    I'm thinking it could work like posting an image that doesn't fit. Only the part that fits is displayed, the rest is just off to the right with no scrollbar to get to it.



    * I didn't actually ask them.

    I have to agree though, we look like idiots with the 16 character limit.

    Also, usernames in forum posts should use multiple lines instead of being truncated. Especially when the ellipsis takes up more space than the last part of the username.

    Or either shrink the font by a little bit or widen the sidebar slightly.
