Guild Wars Wiki:Requests for technical administration/Username limits
From Guild Wars WikiJump to navigationJump to search
- Limit the size of a user's name to a maximum of 32 bytes and throttles the amount of accounts an IP can create per 24 hours to 4.
- Change to MediaWiki configuration
- Restricts inappropriate usernames used for vandalism.
$wgMaxNameChars = 32
$wgAccountCreationThrottle = 2
- Possible pitfalls
- Currently existing usernames over 32 bytes would be unusable. However, as per this userlist, few, if any legitimate accounts would be affected.
