    Hi - this is a very small (but annoying point).
    My company name is Waterlane Studios, which is One Letter to Long to fit on alongside my posts...
    This means that all my posts have the profile showing WaterlaneStudio and then the 's' by itself on the next line.

    Can this be worked around?
    e.g. Is there a way to fit the name length onto one line, or have number of displayed characters increased or allow spaces to be use and words which do not fit onto a line get moved to a the next line..?

    I agree; it makes these forums look silly. :p

    Unfortunately without changing the font there's no way to so... but I do recommend just using the name "Waterlane" as-is, since Studios is merely an affix, and could be spelled out in the signature and avatar.

    As far as I know changing our username is not possible.

    Yes - that sounds like a good compromise. Great idea. Thanks.

    2nd link is handy... I needed to log out/in to force the change.
    Thanks again for the help. :)
