'invalid characters in username'

Post by dhiltonp » May 11th, 2019, 2:31 am

I went to log in to the game for some multiplayer (yes, it's been a while).

I'm told only alphanumeric characters, underscores and hyphens are allowed.

I tried to change my username here on the forum, but it's not editable via the account management UI.

It may seem silly (this is my first post in 11 years), but I'd hate to create a new account...

Do admins have the power to change usernames?

We can. Send me a PM with what you'd like your username changed to, and I'll update it.
