This is just to be safe, but since i couldnīt make my 2 normal forums names, since both are 3 letters long. Please let that be possible for game, hell maybe even for forum later.

I know this is a small thing, just feels a bit sad not being able to use my normal user name.

Why not add them together to a super name? I have done that before, with mixed results, but usually it turns out OK. And the shorter they are the easier they are to combine.

As a guy who's nickname has been PET since 1997 I approve this message.

I have no idea why the hell people limit to 4+ characters.

No idea. I find it strange myself, but it isnt an issue for me luckily.

Maybe it is a security thing? You could ask a mod.

No security thing at all. There are plenty of BIG forums/system that allows 3 characters. Are they less secure?

I did say maybe for a reason haha.

Like I said, I am not sure, but an idea is an idea. I don't see a good reason if it isn't security related though.

They could have seperate screen names and account logon names. Screen names could easily be allowed to be smaller while still having account names longer for security.

It probably has something to do with security but off the top of my head, I can't think of any reasons why.

Also to solve this, you can have an IGN and a Login Name.

This way the Login name can be secure with more characters.
