My username seems to break things

    Put simply, when I try to use this username to register on BukkitDev, I get this result:[​IMG]

    It worked perfectly on the forums, and on my GitHub profile. Is this a bug? If not, is there any logical reasoning behind this sort of restriction?

    I did some testing and it looks like you can't have names that start with numbers, although that error message is really not very helpful. I also got an "Invalid profile" while testing what ever that means.

    Isn't it glorious? In order to complain, you need to register, but in order to register, you need to submit a complaint with curse. By the time they tell you there's nothing they'll do about it, you'll already have an account.

    I tried quite hard to get my curse premium cancelled before they finally told me they didn't have a system in place to remove my curse premium subscription. They finally offered to remove my plugin, so I've suffered the immense emotional toll of having curse premium since.

    I asked them via Twitter and Facebook which are my only real avenues as the support page also has a broken CAPTCHA plugin (no site-key being sent to the API). Nothing else I can really do. Until then I guess my plugins can stick on GitHub.

    You could always use a username that works.

    This is 2012. The username should work.

    I gave you a support avenue, and an alternative. It is your choice to do something about it, or not. Whether it should work or not is really rather irrelevant.

    As much as it's a completely valid alternative, I don't really see why this restriction should be in place at all. As such, I'm doing what I can about it: I've informed the Curse support team via the best avenues I can due to my inability to even register a support account thanks to a broken CAPTCHA site key.

    Er, please enlighten me as to how the solution to my problem is irrelevant, though. That part I just don't understand.

    Saying it should work is irrelevant.

    Glad you've taken on my recommendation to talk to the people who need to know about this concern of yours. Locked.
