Hi, I'm trying to remove my surname from this project due to some unwanted Googling of my name, but every time I try to change my name in "other account info" it keeps telling me my username must contain atleast one letter...

You are filling in something, aren't you? It won't save an empty name box.
So what of you just edit it to say Wayne, then click Update Info?

Thats exactly what I tried to do, but that didn't work. I am keying in characters, but the site thinks the box is empty.

I'll check into it. We should also check the password change mechanism,
as I have heard reports of problems with that too.

I belive I have fixed the problem, on both the form to change your account name, and on the account creation form. There was a problem in the test for letters using a regular expression which was unfortunately not enclosed in /slashes/

Please test this and report any problems.

Thank you for the reports.

Ok now the form just leads to a blank page (http://pirates.spy-hill.net/create_account_action.php) without error message but also without creating a new account.
