mediagoblin converts entered username to lower case

mediagoblin converts entered "UserName" to lower case "username" on account creation.

This can be confusing and a source of errors when using the pump api, as other servers respect casing.

Change History (2)

It was apparently a design decision to store usernames as lowercase in the user database. Because of that, I made a change (see ticket #938) to convert usernames to lower case when a user logs in from the web UI login form.

If mediagoblin code is changed to allow mixed-case usernames, then the change implemented as part of ticket #938 should also be reverted.
