Don't auto capitalize names


This may come out as silly but its kinda annoying that auto capitalizes usernames. I think it should be optional because some people including myself don’t like our names be capitalized. I don’t know why it does this in the first place other then for keeping the website aesthetics same over the whole website.


Thank you for mentioning your concern.

I can sympathize. But we follow the naming conventions of real names (no numbers, capitalized starting letter) with the only exception of underscore. It also is required for user URLs in case we remove the “+” in the link (there was/is a plan to do that). Additionally, as you already mentioned, it looks better on the site when those are homogenous.

This likely won’t be changed. Something similar to Twitch’s “edit capitalization” feature might be possible.

Sorry for the troubles. 🙇
