OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

The following might be an interesting read, although it's a shame (as pointed out in the comments) it doesn't offer any solutions:


Allowing users to change their names whenever they have the need for it and using UTF-8 or UTF-16 generally covers most different characters, and those two solve almost all the issues mentioned. Then just define the maximum length of the name as something more reasonable, like e.g. 1024 characters, and minimum length as 1.
