Description Duncan Harris 2005-06-30 13:20:23 UTC
Part of the general mess from this move (though I think in the long run it's a good 
one). Anyway,

Go to http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Special:Userlogin and try to create an account as 
a new user person with a lower case username, and you can't with no explanation why 
(though that's presumably in the Mediawiki namespace but I'm not an admin there to 
change it).
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-07-01 21:54:26 UTC
This actually had gotten broken on _all_ wikis by a recent code change, not just the capitalized ones.

I've now fixed it to auto-capitalize usernames without complaining.
