Usernames in Forums

Why is it that some usernames don't work in the forums? My account on geocaching.com doesn't work here. I had to make a new account just for here because my usual account doesn't work for here. I feel like I broke a rule. Am I even allowed to have two accounts?

Special characters are a problem in names in the forums. I know & is one real big one.

The forum software is not written by grundspeak so what's a legal username there is not necessarily a legal one here. But in most cases it works.


What doesn't work is trying to PM a message to someone with a special character in their name. One has to resort to emailing from geocaching.com's profile if you need to do that.
