Fearless Leaders:
I have a request. It would be nice to be able to spell my last name correctly here on the mighty D. One is not allowed to have an apostrophe (and probably hyphen or any other common symbol used in names), and it's not permitted to have two capital letters in one word. I'm sure there are a few other D-Mc's, Mac's, or O'Whatevers who would also appreciate. I suppose I could simply sign each and every post, spelling it correctly. But the D-Cops wouldn't like that....
Very Truly Yours,
Lenville O'Donnell

Lenville, this will be fixed with the next update of our software.

Lenville, I just figured it was jealousy, that they didn't want us to have too much pride – kinda like "Hey Laddie, why should you get to have 2 capitals letters in your name?" But alas, it's only a software thing...

Well, I just put an apotostrophe into Lenville's name, and if you don't watch out, I'll make you a Mc'collum.

or M'CCollum. Wow, that'd be 3 capital letters in my name. And an apostrophe. I feel like a Scots-Irish-Vulcan!

Well, apologies to Vulcan and everyone affected by this. I hate it when names are messed with. Peter will fix this ASAP.

No worries Ben (at least for me), considering how good this site is, this is the equivalent of fine tuning/polishing an edit. Now can you imagine what would happen if you made the name field editable like the location?

Btw, many thanks to you and Peter for the continued work that you put in on the site. Very much appreciated!

It's fixed now. I don't know how Ben snuck that apostrophe through four hours ago...

But this change leaves it in our own hands to judge how to capitalize our own names....
