Hyphen at the beginning of a name? How can it be???

Dear Tip.It Community,

I have seen many a player with some sort of dash or hyphen at the beginning of their RuneScape Display Name. Ones such as these: and, -. Now, I know that's not right because the rules of a display name clearly state that the name MUST start with a letter and end with one. So, how is this at all possible? Is it a bug? Are these people abusing a bug? Should I then report them?

 

~Sincerely,

It's possible that at one time you could start your display name with a dash/hyphen, but Jagex has since decided to disallow it. Same thing happened with Tumblr where you could make your url -anythingyouwant.tumblr.com, but it caused so many problems with browser url recognition they no longer allow it, but didn't require existing accounts to change their url if they already had a starting dash.

I expect this is similar to how suomi has multiple spaces in his name.

 

Yeah, you can create an account with multiple spaces, but I don't think Jagex allows us to change our names to something like what Suomi has.

Not sure if this has changed recently.

Working on max and completionist capes.
