One single space is all I want :(
Every battle ebbs and flows. To go against these tides is unwise.

I'm sure one of the admins/master moderators here will correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the whole space debarcle came out of the GameFAQs/GameSpot board merge a few years ago. I know we've split since but the rule seems to have stayed.

Of course, this is a perfect opportunity to brag that I have two spaces in my name. More spaces in my name than the admins put together ;)

IIRC you're right, CNet was moving with the Universal Account system across all of their sites including GameSpot, MP3.com, etc. and when GameFAQs joined the party we had to adopt their username policies.

Regardless, single-word username master race checking in. =)
All good things must come to an end - preferably in a humongous explosion!

I agree with Ladyvant.
I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.
