    But yesterday in a (now binned) thread, I saw two different accounts have exactly the same username.

    What's up with that?

    If you look closer, it should be obvious that they are not the same indeed.

    Right, one has an invisible character in the end.

    Was going to make a SecretDuck account but TSR's having 503 issues atm.

    Yep, it's definitely possible.

    Let's hope this doesn't become a TSR trend :yy:

    I only noticed that you can do it yesterday. It's been around for as long as special characters existed, apparently.
