Hi,

Tried to create an account with a username of the style acct-name but got the following error message:

Failed to create account: acct-name - Uncaptured Faucet Exception: Assert Exception: is_valid_name( name ):

the account name was liberty-academy 7 characters followed by a dash (-) and then 7 more characters for a total of 15 characters (no spaces of course).

Is this a problem because the name I chose is too long?  I know the dash is not an issue since my other account name has one.

I'd be most grateful if anyone could advise on this issue and offer a fix to it.

Cheers,

The error message has been thrown by the backend, not sure why it would believe it is invalid .. I have restarted the daemon, can you try again?

I restarted the faucet. Need to investigate what is causing these issues.

After upgraded to 2.0.180328 witness_node should have produced more logs. Please check.

I wasn't certain if if was appropriate to create a new thread for this, but I am having the exact same issue upon registration:

Uncaptured Faucet Exception: Assert Exception: is_valid_name( name ):

First time using bitshares and was hoping to use the bitshares.org site to start - other options seem too advanced. Any help is appreciated, thank you.

I think it's same issue.

Unfortunately even the latest version of bitshares-core doesn't provide more info at this point. (there are security concerns that not returning the input data when the data is invalid, although I'm not quite sure).

@pc please comment?

There is only only place in the backend that will throw the assertion failure: https://github.com/bitshares/bitshares-core/blob/2.0.180328/libraries/chain/protocol/account.cpp#L189

The function is_valid_name is defined in the same file slightly higher up, and checks if the account name to be registered conforms to the blockchain rules. The account "liberty-academy" mentioned in the OP is acceptable. @crockett83 didn't mention what name he tried to register.

Since the OP's problem was fixed by restarting the faucet the problem needs to be analyzed there.
Please vote for my BitShares witness "cyrano" and for my STEEM witness "cyrano.witness"!

I joined just now solely because I'm having the same issue!
Is the fix at your end or at mine? I tried downloading the client as well and had the same problem.
I'm trying to sign up as viking-ventures so that I can receive the WhaleShares I won on Steemit this morning.
Thanks for your help!

Never mind... someone suggested I try openledger.io - and it worked just fine.

@xeroc if hard to find the reason, perhaps restart the faucet periodically with a script?

Faucet was restated this morning. Some more error handling was implemented in the backend code with the hopes of circeling the error.
