Yes, it should be. If you do a search, it will only find users that have posted. It does not show posters that have zero posts. It could be possible there is one by that name, although it is not very likely.

You know that is unfair - damn non-posters holding back names.

Don't you here have a common forum policy of periodically purging zero-post accounts? That should be almost a routine (for system resource cleanup purposes and so forth - while at the same time letting dormant-but-once-used accounts stay alive, you can and should get rid of zero posters without any loss to anyone (if it's a long ago lurker they can always lurk back with a new nick

No, we don't purge zero-post accounts. There is always a chance someone will want to post in the future. At that point they should still have their account available.

It is different for banned accounts. Their names are freely changed when needed.

No, it depends on the actual username requested. It would be very confusing if a poster would request Queenpova. It would not be allowed.

Oh dear, that went wrong obviously. Sabinator asked about the zero being possible. That's what probably lead to the confusion. I will rectify it later tonight. If that is too late, ask Meelis if he wants to change it.

Normally that type of change is included in the 3 months rule. The dot however was part of your original request, so it can be done.
