I just upgraded to 6.5, and when I was changing my displayed name.. it told me my username was too long, that user names could only be 250 characters long and mine was 450 characters long.
For starters, the username I wanted to change it to was: "zêß®å p®ïñt ßõxê®§" Which is obviously not 450 characters long.
Then, when I gave up, I noticed that it said: "» Hello, zêß®å p®ïñt ßõxê®§" at the top, and yet all my posts and my name in my profile was the same as it was before I attempted to change it.
Then, I tried changing my name to something else that worked before I upgraded. And it gave me the same character error.
Now, when I try to change my name to any of the other names I've used before it says: "The login or public display name that you are trying to use has been reserved by an existing member. Please select another."
When clearly, nobody is using any of those names.
