    I guess I'll throw out the obvious thing here.
    Isn't 1 character member names a bit short, non ?

    As always I love @Amaury bug reports :)

    Actually I mentioned it first and @Amaury was kind enough to start a bug report.
    Normally yes but we have a few members with 1 character user names.

    This is essentially a design issue and isn't something we plan on changing. We need to do partial matches to try to determine what username you actually typed, so by allowing 1 character matches we are significantly increasing the search space (matching all users that start with A for example). This would be potentially bad for performance.
