but at least it would solve the problem for now ... And anyone picking that username in the next few days is probably a multi who's seen this thread and is being a smartass. And if it did happen again, perhaps we could just politely ask the user if he wouldn't mind his name being changed to "V." or "Vee" or something similar.

This has been done, and the username 'V' has been restricted from further use.

Moved to Implemented.

Basically, if you're a tournament organizer and you're sending out invites to a lot of players all at once, you're going to copy and paste (e.g. Ctrl+C and then Ctrl+V on many operating systems) the usernames into the invite box. The problem is that if you accidentally don't depress the Control key during the paste step, you're just going to invite player "v" to your game. This is problematic because as there's still no way to cancel a game invite, that spot is held up for 24 hours by a player that's not on the site, much less in the actual tournament.

when inviting someone to a game TO's often copy the name from some where else (using Ctrl C) and paste it in the invite section (Using Ctrl V) especially for multiple invites.
Sometimes they'd slip on the CTRL and end up inviting user V instead of the correct user and have to drop the game, remake it and send back the invites... Could be time consuming.
