Bob?

Why does your username commence with a capital letter? Mine does that aswell.. And Mayla. Most usernames seem to begin with a lower case letter. I feel special - and a little embarrassed.

Nothing strange about that, it's whatever you typed in...probably most found it simpler to ignore the caps when registering :)

Painful as it may seem I don't buy that 99.9% of the forum users would have used lower case letters.

Actually the answer is probably too boring - if it's a real name it makes sense to have a capital.

I think you could put whatever you wanted when it used to be Piano Forum years ago.  Nils switched it to Piano Street and then users could only get lowercase.

I think Mayla requested the M.  I may have too.  I don't remember.  I know he can change it though.

Or it was a forum software upgrade that did it.  Something technical and Nils et al could manually change the name.

Now when you mention it. I may have requested it as well - so much for the mystery.  :-[

It must just be a display feature too.  On the upper right of this page it says I'm logged in as "bob."  Lowercase.
