Long username obscures the VP counter
« on: 12 December 2017, 08:24:14 AM »
 A long username takes up all of the black area and the VP counter is pushed to the right and then obscured by opponent's cards.

Is there a way to change a username after the registration?

I mean I understand that this can be a problem, but changing what is displayed automatically is also problematic.

 It is not my username that is causing the problem but occasional opponents.

I made a username as long as allowed (20 characters) and played against it. No matter how I changed the aspect ratio, I could not get the VP counter much out of the black box (a little bit, yes, but not in a way that had any impact on its visibility). I used Firefox on Windows.

Can you tell me what browser and what OS/device you are using?

Have you tried all uppercase W's? WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW should be the widest 20 characters available...

Now I have! ;)

And it is considerable worse than my previous attempt with more varied letters.

I'm not sure what to do, though. Maybe shortening is possible if the game can detect that the text goes over a certain limit.
