Problems with long user names

Hi, and welcome to TaxAlmanac, the online research resource and community for tax professionals.

User names longer than about 10 lower-case characters stretch out the discussion forum columns (the "creator" column, and the "last poster column"). Your name is 10 UPPER CASE characters, which take up more space. It will cause problems any time you were to start a new discussion.

This is a display problem we're trying to get Intuit to fix but meanwhile we just ask users to try to avoid using long user names so that all the other users don't have to struggle with the display problem.

All you have to do to avoid causing problems with your long user name is start over with a new name and use it from now on. To do that, log out with this name, close all browser windows (preferably, quit the browser - otherwise you may find you're still posting with the long name!), and then when you come back next time, just start over through the "create a new user" process, and pick a new name that's fewer than ~10 characters, using lower case where possible. You can then just abandon this name once you have the new one set up.

Please be sure to copy your user page info over to the new name to provide some info about your level of experience/background as a tax pro.

Thanks for helping us out with this issue.

Status of your discussion

Hi, your name is only slightly stretching out the forum columns on the tax forum; so it looks like it won't need to be replaced/reposted with a shorter name. At some point once the discussion has become dormant, I will replace and restore it then (in case it gets bumped by someone else later). If you come back after that and you don't find it in the forum indexes, and yet you want to add a follow-up post, please go to the "my contributions" link in the upper right corner of your screen. That shows you all of your prior posts.

It would be a great help for the future, though, if you were to switch to a shorter (or all lower-case) name for any future discussions you're going to post.
