Hi all

When I registered, I was not able to enter my full name because of a character limit (hence Andy not Andreas).

However, I can see that other people have longer names.

My question is: how can I get a longer name?

Hi Andy Dec 13, 2005

It seems to me that the problem is that you are trying to provide your full name into the 'username' box which has a limited number of characters.

In your profile, go to 'edit personal data' and provide your first name and last name in the corresponding boxes. Click the 'update' button in the bottom of the window.

Return to your profile page and click the 'edit your profile' button. In the upper part of the window choose one of the two options:
- Show first and last name, as entered in profile (you should choose this one if you want your full name to be shown)
- Show username, as used in login
