Parentheses now ignored in display names

If you put parentheses — "(" or ")" — in your display name, they will now be ignored.

So if you set your display name to

boop (de) (doop)


it will be

boop de doop


This is to save confusion when non-moderators put "(moderator)" in their display name.

Now, when you see "(moderator)" or "(admin)" in somebody's display name, you know they are a moderator or admin.
