Name in preferences does not have a maxlength


(Dan Friedman) #1

When going to preferences, I can change my name to have over 200 characters. I stopped, as it already looks ridiculous. I looked at the input tag and there is no maxlength attribute set.

Unfortunately, this name is too long and something chokes on it if you try to sign up with that name.

So there is a max length, it’s just implicit in the backend.

And a long name will break the layout…


(Kane York) #6

Hmm, so it does. (This is everything but the last name.)

This was fixed a few weeks ago.
