    Add

    $ENV{'LONGUSERS'} = 1;

    to the top of your /scripts/wwwact file and it will work fine.

    I tried that before, but for some reason the quota of this account is always set to unlimited. I tried to change the quota but it doesn't change. It only works normal when the username has less then 8 characters... :(
    Also this only work for creating an account, if you want to edit the username it still wont let you because of the character limit.
