Dear MNHQ

Please can you re-instate the longer nicknames on the top of posts?

Thank you smile

LyraSilvertongue Tue 14-Jul-09 11:39:38

Yes, cut-off nicknames are pointless.

I'm with them

We understand that you need space for the date etc, but there's room left for a few more characters.

If it's not going to show up on our posts then you should restrict the length at the point when we choose the nickname.

get a shorter name you letter hoggers

TrillianoftheShineyCult Tue 14-Jul-09 12:19:11

While we're at it can we have a sticking-out-tongue emoticon?

Hi BALD! grin

There are cut-off nicknames??

TrillianoftheShineyCult Tue 14-Jul-09 12:28:27

In MN New, which I assume MNHQ want us to use since they paid someone to make it, the name above a post gets cut off after a certain number of characters. It's annoying.

SoupDragon Tue 14-Jul-09 12:29:39

Pah! New is not always better, see.

TheChilliMooseIsRubbish Tue 14-Jul-09 12:43:13

Yeah, I like to change mine every day or so once in a while, but now no-one gets to see it and therefore you are missing out on the full chilli experience grin

Yes give us longer names

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 14-Jul-09 15:20:50

Ok Ok - we'll see if we can squeeze in a few more - bear with us though BitTech is very hard to pin down at the moment wink.

TrillianoftheShineyCult Tue 14-Jul-09 15:37:09

Yay! Thank you!

Is there a way to put inback to MN classic?

FlamingoOfTheShineyCult Tue 14-Jul-09 19:54:30

yay, yay, yay!

Garcons - all new posters will be on new MN, so using classic hardly counts if only old posters will see the names.

GarconsSontCommeDesChiens Tue 14-Jul-09 20:43:49

go to my mumsnet, then I forget how to change to classic, have a fiddle, gwan

TheChilliMooseIsRubbish Tue 14-Jul-09 20:55:08
