    Who has the longest username here ? I hope no one guessed this was coming. :smug:

    Note: His Id should be less than 60k as yesterday.

    Is it possible to find this out by other means than just scrolling endlessly through user lists?

    I'm using one technique to fetch the records for 30,000 users all at once, but it's got stuck :(
    I don't know if it's even processing my command

    that's from the first 13,000 names, sorted by joining date

    guys, change the way you are looking for :)

    who thinks there is still a longer name?

    Hint Hint Hint. Try Register form and see the limit of the username.

    haha. for that I had to logout and register...

    it is 20 now, but the user I mentioned is register in 2006. what was the limit at that time?

    and the question has only 2 condition:
    1] longest username
    2] id less than 60K

    yep but how does knowing the longest possible length help?
    (a) as nimesh points out it may have changed and perhaps usernames can't be as long as they were then
    (b) so what if you know the maximum length is say 25, how does that help you find the longest username?

    special_rahul@yahoo.co.in
    25 chars, as nimesh....
    id 155 has حور الجن but in original language it's 8 chars, so it doesn't count, i think :/
    i regret, that i found this topic just now, it take some time to find the longest one... :/

    i've done the tests, and there are only two names with 25 chars (if you don't cpunt that html elements)
    Code:
    +------+---------------------------+
    | id   | nickname                  |
    +------+---------------------------+
    |  614 | special_rahul@yahoo.co.in |
    | 1469 | copb_therememberedphoenix |
    +------+---------------------------+

    No one could beat that and so Congrats.

    BTW there is no way apart from seeing it in member list.
