    Hey there,

    Sorry for an ultra dumb question in advance (I tried searching but found nothing) but is there any way I can get a capital letter added to my username?

    For some reason when I signed up my whole name was converted to lower-case and being a journalist and grammar nerd it bugs the hell out of me. :eek:

    I notice that the vast majority of users are in lower-case - is this a feature of the forum so that you can only have your username in lower-case until you reach a certain number of posts?

    I basically want my name to appear as 'Firstrate' rather that 'firstrate'.

    Cheers guys - maybe I am just being stupid. :(

    Really? o_O

    Being a journalist and grammer nerd I assume you also want it hyphenated or spaced also? You know, being as firstrate would be incorrect and all.

    Funny.

    Actually no, because it's a forum username so can be any combination of characters. I know. I'm a picky son of a bitch. I have OCD for these things. :rolleyes:

    Just wondered if it was a feature of the forum? You have to earn your stripes before you were awarded a capital letter...

    Hah yeah I did - uploaded my own one. Your eyes are not deceiving you. :)

    I checked the FAQ's and forum for stickies and can't find anything at all.

    Anyone?

    Just take a look at Daves signature, the owner of the site.
