Pernicious commas and the removal thereof.

So, it's been brought to my attention that thanks to the comma in my user name i can't actually recieve PMs. Apparently they're being sent to "Chris" and "Waffle King," but not to "Chris, Waffle King." This is, slightly problematic. Is there anything we can do about it?

    I can change your name, that's about it. Putting the name in quote might work.

    @chris, waffle king Seems to work? Just put your whole name in quotes.

    i think the problem was trying to do a message through my profile, though. To be honest, i'm not 100% sure what the issue was, having never PM'd anyone (or gotten a PM before, though perhaps we have the answer to that one now).

    Tube, i think maybe i'll have to ask you to pop the comma out of my username. It'll look weird, but, such is life at times, i suppose. Sorry for causing any trouble with this. Thanks.

    Colons make everything better!

    Unlike those damned half-breeds, semicolons...

    As someone with ulcerative colitis I take offense at this statement.

    Thank you all for the help and suggestions! The colon looks fine. With due deference to DarkPrimus for his debilitating condition.

    Much like your comma, things improved for me once the colon was removed. I only wish it had been removed... more punctually.
