Cant PM someone with a comma in thier name

halkunhalkun Registered User regular
@I'm An Elk, Shoot Me -- can't receive PMs because of a comma in the username. I'm reporting it so that it doesn't look like that that person is requesting a name change (It's a very scary thing to ask for!) and if it looks like I'm asking to change the name, I'll take the hit and not Elk.

Can you fix this, or get with Elk to have the name changed?

Because I work in tech support and they all like screenshots. I have a pic here showing the exact problem. It's not the @ that's the issue, rather the New Message "Recipients" field is parsing the comma incorrectly.

    more info: The quote workaround doesn't work either.
    Screenshot here. We get an recipient error.

    I should clarify that anyone who has a name that is actively fucking with their use of the forum from a technical point of view should feel free to contact me about a name change. Normal evisceration policies do not apply.

    "I don't like my name!" or "I acted like a douche with this name and now everyone hates me!" are not technical problems.
