Long Unicode characters break a lot of stuff

Bug: Long Unicode characters in usernames break multiple things, including
1: allows you to get names longer than the 25 character limit while still having a 25 character username
2: entering an account with an incredibly long username causes you to not be able to log out without uninstalling hopscotch, the seeds button blocks the options button.
3: liking or following projects makes the notifications fill the entire bar.
4: going to a profile with a long username using the Unicode characters has the username go offscreen.

Screenshots:

Steps to reproduce bug:

  • Create an account using ﷽ Or another similar long character spammed into the username
  • you won’t be able to log out + everything above

Sheesh, this one is a bit weird.

THT could easily fix this by relocating the “Get Seeds” button to where it’s not overlapping or blocking anything important…

You can rename yourself, as I’ve now been notified of.
And a text cap on notifications would be good

Ngl, hopscotch has a lot of problems with this character limit stuff. Needs to be fixed.

I’d usually test the bug, but I don’t want to go through the process of having to wait for the app to install again.

Oof
Big oof
I think usernames should be based off of actual length (like width), not length in charcters
