    Hey BHW,

    I really hate that the "j"s are cut off in BHW usernames (see attached example), it makes them look almost identical to "i"s

    This needs to be fixed.

    Basically, all the letters with a "descender" are cut off: g, j, q, p, y

    Love you BHW.

    Yes, it is a problem for all letters that have a "descender" = g, j, q, p, y
    but "j" and "i" are the hardest to tell apart.

    I've found that you can get around this fairly easily if you right click on the username. The option saying "Search Google for [...]" shows you their username without the underline, so you can tell the difference between i's and j's, etc.

    @Wilhelm Squee Yes getting around it is not hard (cool trick by the way) but it's annoying and I feel it need to be brought to @Diamond Damien 's attentions or somebody's that can potentially fix it.

    That's fair enough, he might be able to see if it can be changed. Otherwise, the workaround should help you if you get stuck with this.

    The other option would be to look at their profile as well - there's no underline there either.

    It's a bit hard to do that on Windows.

    In Windows, I'm fairly sure you have to manually highlight the username, which can be fiddly.

    The alternative then would be to look at the account's profile page - you'll see their full username without the underline there.

    And you don't need to teach me how to do that. I said it's not as easy as in Mac. So calm down and reply politely.

    The above guy really needs to understand that.

    Why all these steps are offered in the first thing, it's a question about user experience on this forum and BHW designer can fix it with a few css tweaks, overall usability and user experience will be better.
