The database limits the length of a username to 16 characters. So you would have to change that and then find all the places where you could enter a username and change the max. length of the input fields as well ... I don't understand your second question. Are you referring to the story id? You can't "make your own" story id (and it wouldn't make sense anyway). When a new story is created, the function COM_makesid (in lib-common.php) is called which creates a story id out of the current day and time plus a random number. bye, Dirk
