Usernames are a subset of page titles, and must follow the rules for
page titles. Mediawiki, the software behind Wikipedia, treats by default all article titles as beginning with a capital letter (unless the first character is not a letter).
Note that $wgCapitalLinks can be used to disable auto-capitalization for page titles. According to this discussion, ...

It's a technical restriction with the MediaWiki software. All page names and page titles must begin with a capital letter.
Technical restrictions and limitations
[...] These limitations and restrictions include:
A pagename can not begin with a lowercase letter (in any alphabet).
Since user pages are subsets of normal pages, they are ...
You cannot add any elements that are not available in the form builder, so you cannot control how the respondent's username is displayed.
But the the username is displayed to the user filling in your form, if you're using Google Apps for Business. Make sure the options Require [domain name] login to view this form and Automatically collect respondent's [...
I looked at the source for a page that contains such examples, and it looks like what they are doing is to use the signature field in the user-profile settings to (below). You can enter markup (the examples I saw were using the deprecated <font> tag and style attribute). Then when you edit a Wikipedia page and add the ~~~~ to add your signature, it ...
There is no way of changing the address name of your Yahoo account which is linked to Gmail. You will have to create a new Gmail address. I suggest you don't link the new address to your Gmail account. The only thing you can do is to create a new account that is separated from all your other accounts and use that for Google Play.
So, I had the same problem as Danny.
I used my Google login to create a Trello account, and didn't appreciate the 1 tacked onto the end of my username.
Surprisingly, the following worked....
Note that I had 2 accounts, was an invited member of a private board (tied to the "wrong" username) and still got it ALL sorted out to my liking. Goldilocks would be ...
In short no. However there seems to be a hack out there (I've not tested this)
As per Facebook’s condition and terms, it does not allow the users to
change their facebook usernameafter setting one. But this simple
technic allows to do that. To change your username, you just have to
deactivate your account. But don’t worry you will not loss any data,...
You cannot remove your username. Once you have a username the only options are
Start a new account (most likely you don't want that)
Change to a new username (you can only do this once)
A third possible (rare) option would be that a Business/entity decides to claim ownership of your username as Facebook reserves the right to reclaim usernames.
If you want to promote your Twitter handle off-line especially in spoken formats, eg announcing at a conference "follow Anna_goes_home on Twitter for live-tweet updates, then the underscore is a pain. It's hard to vocalise, and a fair proportion of non-tech-heads won't even know what an "underscore" is.
But if your promotions are totally on-line using ...
If it says that you're not allowed to use that emoji, you are not allowed to use that emoji. To put it in other words: No means no.
Edit: As for the reason why this is, my guess is that the Rofl-emoji is from one of the more recent Unicode versions and Google probably didn't update their database of allowed characters since.
You can send feedback (...
You can only change the username for your personal profile once.
If you have a really, really, good reason you might try to ask a question on their support forum, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.
Have you tried adding a filter that would forward all filtered e-mails to the a second account?
First, you must create the secondary email. Add it as a forwarding address in GMail; go to Settings > Forwarding and POP/IMAP. You will need to open this secondary email to verify.
In GMail, go to Settings > Filters and Create a New filter (this is located at ...
If you tell me your username or by which name you are trying I would have checked it once, but i seen some examples by typing different names. So what i got for you is->302 means FOUND more about 302
The requested resource resides temporarily under a different URI. Since the redirection might be altered on occasion, the client SHOULD continue to use the ...
In the title it is stated that this is optional for channels.
As outlined in the first paragraph this is not required. Just something Channels may want to do. Weather you'll be able to keep your accounts separated is in the hands of Google
The first letter of the username on Wikipedia is not case sensitive and is forced upper-case. However, including the code
at the top of your user page and talk page displays your username in lowercase.
Also remember to customize your signature on Special:Preferences, for example:
[[User:Justinacolmena|justinacolmena]] ([[User talk:...
As a general rule, we don't change user names. However, due to Facebook Connect automatically populating your user name and not giving you an option, we will be glad to change your name. Looking through our records, I don't see any correspondence from you, but if you will email me at email@example.com, I will get you squared away.
Follow this link: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#settings/accounts (If it doesn't work, go to Gmail, click the gear icon, and click the Accounts tab.)
You may see different email addresses with different names, or just one, but either way, you can change the default account and/or edit the display name as needed.
I suppose, that Facebook is using some kind of delay to avoid fraud or irritations by overtaken usernames.
I see two possible ways (but I am not sure about their likelyness to be successful):
Wait some hours, days, weeks until this delay is over (but it might also well be that somewhen taken usernames are never given free anymore).
Write a mail to the ...
In fact, when you delete a Gmail account, you can still recover your Gmail username with the Google account you used to create it, else it is lost forever. Indeed, for security purpose, a deleted username is locked to prevent a malicious impersonation or website account theft on other websites linked to the old Gmail account.
Depending on your middle initial, you could pull off something like
You may have to use a nickname like
You get the idea.
The best website for checking availability is here:New Gmail Account.
From this article, it says that it might be useful to use a ...
YouTube seems to be cleaning up inactive accounts. There have been a couple accounts that I have followed personally as to await when they will be deleted. As of recently, they have all 404'd, which means YouTube closed these accounts due to inactivity.
On that note, I would also assume the same rules applies to when one closes their account manually, you ...
If it's possibly a registered trademark, has been banned, or the user closed it. The other possibility is that the username was registered & used before Youtube was purchased by Google.
Google won't allow the reuse of a username that's been used before. (Sources: one, two, three)
Likely, this account was created before the requirement that a youtube ...
