Renaming an existing account
Short, concise description of the idea
More information should be given before a rename token is purchased.
Full description of the idea
So I just spent $12 on a rename token not knowing that the username I wanted was too long (by ONE character, but that's for another time). I didn't see anything about a character limit BEFORE I bought the rename token, I saw it AFTER when I went to change my username.
It's been about 4 years since I registered for LJ, so you can't possibly expect me (or others for that matter) to remember the character limit for that long a period of time. Basically, all I'm asking, is that you add this little tid-bit of information somewhere (like on "the Account Renaming Service" page for instance) so that people KNOW how long their usernames can be BEFORE they spend money on a rename token that they can't get a refund for. Thank you and have a wonderful day.
- Well, you'd have at least one less aggravated member, and it really shouldn't take that long to add it...it could be something like "usernames have a limit of 15 characters"; if I could edit LJ like a Wikipedia, I'd do it myself. :P
- Erm, well since I'm just asking you all to include more information for something, I can't really see what problems it could cause...
