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.

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!

Same issue here, cannot create account. Tried for hours.

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.

@xeroc @sschiessl I got this when trying to create an account:

Account name in the error message is apparently not what I'm trying to register:

We're trying to integrate Bitshares into the Internet of Coins platform, and we're running into the same issue.
Is there a more decentralized way to register accounts than using the faucet? We'd be ready to implement.

If not, we'll wait with implementing Bitshares until this problem is resolved.
