Description guaka 2005-04-04 19:14:05 UTC
Creating a new username that is not capitalized doesn't work on the French
Wiktionary. Instead MediaWiki tells there was no username entered. It worked
fine on the English Wiktionary (which doesn't distinguish Capitalized and
non-capitalized words AFAIK).
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2005-04-04 23:00:54 UTC
It's not possible to create lowercase usernames because usernames need to be consistent for future single sign-on support.
Comment 3 guaka 2005-04-06 13:57:49 UTC
Then there should either be an appropriate warning or automatic capitalization
of the username. MediaWiki shouldn't just say that there was no username
entered. Like this it confuses the shit out of people.
