[BUG] "Persistent nickname" feature does not save for nicknames with less than 3 characters
So, that new "persistent nickname" function is really useful, but I noticed it breaks when you try to assign a nickname with less than 3 characters.

When assigning a nickname with less than 3 characters, it will apply, but it won't save - when you exit Steam the next time, it will be gone, and reverted to the one you had before (be it no nickname or any nickname with 3 characters or more).

Where is this feature? I haven't seen it.
And incidentally, if you want to report a bug, I think you should contact support, not post it here.
I have tried the new beta and still cant see this nickname you are talking about. Where is it?

Also, the BIG PICTURE in the beta? Really weird. Looks like it was designed for tablets.

OH, right, OK, I found this. Just report it to support. Although honestly, I don't see the point in a nickname of less than three characters.

Not intending to necro a thread but this is apparently still an issue, I googled it to find out what was going on and this was first on the list. Apparently I can't nickname someone (Al) because its only two symbols... dumb. Theres plenty of names with less than three symbols, like Jo. But okay, thanks for the info, I added more symbols... o.o
