More on the Top Scores system

So, I have come to the realization that I must have some sort of name attached to a Top Scores entry. John is right, it shouldn't be difficult to see your scores the next day.

And maybe I'm obsessing about this, but then again, I obsess about my games being color-blind accessible, about my games being playable with only a single button mouse, and about trying to communicate visually with icons instead of with text whenever possible, and whenever text *IS* required use the most easily understood text I know how to.

I had one other thought about the top score names, and that is to show them all as ****** fields unless the user enters his name so that he can see his scores, but from a usability point of view, it's just not friendly, so I'm just going to allow names, but only names consisting of 'A'..'Z' and 'a'..'z'. No numbers, no punctuation, no whitespace, and I'll filter out the profanity where I can.
