You can also look those up, atlthough they all either:
have no projects
have projects with little to no content
have projects that are so ancient that they can’t be loaded properly anymore, and raw JSON analysis shows that they have little to no content
(besides “.” obviously, and “-” will be another exception)
The only lowercase single character usernames are: c, e, and s. Thats fun
On the app there are four criteria for picking a username.
(Trims leading and trailing whitespace)
Check if username is 25 characters or less.
On Wifi: Check if internet connected.
Check if any username is duplicate, ignoring case.
Check if starting 5 characters are legal.
Are there only four error messages you can receive?

I’m not sure. It’s probably around that.
You also have to make sure there are no RTL characters.
Oh is that character not allowed at all? Ah I see.
Please choose a username to make your account.
Why is “-1 + Zero Width Character” a taken account?
That makes no sense
Unless that character also gets trimmed. That makes sense.
oh that may be me lol.
I was testing how zero width characters were treated when signing up and i did take a -1 account with a blank character

The character you mentioned earlier is treated like a whitespace, which means that it is trimmed like a whitespace.
-1 are both taken, although not by me
first one contains one zero width space, second contains two
Yeah the first one is me, and the second one is @/000.
ah cool, thank you for clarification -1
I think specifically, the Unicode character in between is U+000B (line tabulation).
I think there’s only 6 whitespace-like characters you can put within the first five characters of your username.
Question, can you make a one-letter username? (I saw H on top gardens)

Yes, but they’re all taken, and they’re not like two-character usernames where they occasionally drop.
I was able to get my hands on one of those recently, although typically it’s just a thing where they’re so old that the people who owned them have graduated high school by now.

If you account for character counts where all usernames are taken, with either no name drops or very little name drops with high demand, a username must be at least three characters. Otherwise, the minimum is one character.
But the middle character can be U+000B to make a seemingly new 2 digit username. Very yummy.

Imagine, someone with an old one-character username logs in and changes their username, but then THT changes the minimum to three characters so no one can claim it. That would be quite sad.
No known way to make a seemingly new 1 digit username.
