I have noticed a few discussions over this topic: if it should or should not support more letters, i.e Chinese characters in username. And the conclusion often comes to NO, and I can understand this for you English guys who are lucky to have only 26 letters, I really, really envy you. For we Chinese, who have almost ten of thousands of letters, I really need the username is more open.
Why? There is display name already, maybe you say. But sorry, it’s useless.
- We can’t log in by it
- We can’t see it, except the profile page
- We can’t mention it, only see it when mentioning
I hope it’s more open, and if the core team think it’s bad for the most people, then, can you just give me some paths to do this job? Like, what’s the difficulty for you to do this?
