    As stated my User Name (TELECOLLECTOR) wraps with the last R on the second line.

    I tried to see if I could edit it but can't find the correct spot.

    I figured if I took it from all caps to just the first letter caps the issue would be resolved but am too stupid to do even that simple-minded mod!

    Thanks for any advice!

    It won't matter with upper/lower case characters, they all have the same area per character. You probably will have to shorten it.

    Damn. Do I even have the ability to change my "name"?

    You have to contact a mod or the site admin to have it changed, and yes, they will do it for you.

    I believe if you have them split it into two words, it will appear as
    TELE
    COLLECTOR

    Thanks guys.

    That makes me feel a bit better that I didn't miss the obvious fix.

    I don't think this is true ........ see lots of 12 character lower case (and even a 13 character ... Misterbulbous) that don't wrap.

    I think my name is split too... But only on certain browsers. I say it doesn't really matter that much.

    Mine does too... not much to do about it, unless the mods change the theme to use a slightly smaller / less bold font. This is the only XenForo forum I'm on where this happens (I use the same username on the others).
