    I'm assuming this has something to do with the coding, but on Zelda Wiki, we have the <nowiki> tag to cancel out coding. Can't we just implement something like that?

    I mean, it's probably something more complex than just imputing HTML coding, but I think it still should run along the same lines. Naturally, I'm probably so clueless about everything ever, but what's preventing us from adding something that disables the forum from recognizing it and causing potential problems?

    So is this a problem with the latest version of add-on, I take it? Because I know this wasn't an issue prior. And who do we have to complain to/punch out in order to get it fixed and allow the apostrophe-loving masses to roam free?
    Don't know what to put here.

    While this particular bug is recent, we have reason to suspect that they're related to a plethora of other possible bugs. We're going to save ourselves some trouble on that front.

    They're not coming back.

    periods, however, are not affected, I take it? I hope it doesn't spread to periods, for I find great joy in being an executable file.

    I see no way how it might possibly be related, but it's conceivable: I'm unable to return my username to 'Misheard Whisper'. When I try, it gives me this message:

    That username is already in use or does not meet the administrator's standards. If you are Misheard Whisper and you have forgotten your password, click here.
    Any relation, mayhaps? (I've checked, and as far as I can tell the username wasn't taken while I wasn't wearing it.)

    Because the system reserves your previous name for a time to prevent someone else taking it immediately and causing confusion. Only problem is it doesn't seem to have an override for the previous owner of the name, so it prevents changing back too.

    And what reason and bugs are these?

    The sort we'd rather NOT spread around.

    I can change your name back if you want to go back to that.

    Thanks, but I might as well stick with Executive Archer while I'm at it. Cheers anyway, though. Glad it's not related to the bug.

    I can't find the control panel where you change your username.

    Go to Settings and Edit Profile, there should be a box to enter your new username there.

    In that case its best to ask an admin if they can change it (and cite that its because of the apostrophe).
