    14 character limit

    The 14 character limit is way too annoying and someone stole my name.. Despite it not showing up when I search it.. Is there a way I can have staff change mine to something shorter?

    There is no means to search forum names. (There was at one time, but that was removed, since miners used that as a means to harvest IDs for spamming). If it does not allow you to take a name, it is because that name was already alloted. And yes, there can be an ID for which no post is found. As games were retired from the forums, those post were deleted.

    You can though contact any Mod and request a name change. Just caution that if the name is already taken, expect an answer of "no".

    (Note: There is a Neoslayer already taken: https://forum.supercell.com/member.p...6409-neoslayer, so that name is not available, if that is the one you desired. How did I find them without a name search? Edit your contact list, enter the name, find the person).

    The stupid 14 character limit for passwords cannot be changed for an individual (and nor can we mods change it for the forum as a whole, that is one thing we don't have control over).
