Registration: username description





Emmer-Compascuum
I don't know if this has been reported before (at least, Google search didn't say anything), but ehm... I'll just continue.

When I was registering and asking myself what username I should enter, I saw this:
Quote:
Spaces and special characters are (no longer) allowed.

Round brackets contain text that can be omitted without destroying or altering the meaning of a sentence. In this case that's not true. These two sentences have two totally different meanings:
1. Spaces and special characters are allowed.
2. Spaces and special characters are no longer allowed.

I think this line should be removed, as it is irrelevant, because in the previous line it is already said that spaces and special characters are not allowed.

........

he is talking about parenthesis, i was telling bondings that "-"AND"_" are also special characters and the sentence says you can use them, if you can't it needs to be removed.
Bondings
You are right, the "no" shouldn't be between brackets. And yes the whole sentence isn't really needed, but it's there to make it completely obvious. I'll either remove it or put the no outside the brackets.

no he was not, re-read his post again, and slower. Also bondings has seen the error in the sentense that he was talking about...all will be fixed.
