If your character name, Bioware name or both are long, you may experience difficulties with certain aspects of the game not working. This includes, but is not limited to subraces, oxen, cnr, houses, bank vaults and quest journals.
One of the things I'd suggest is you create a new and shorter Bioware name to play under. You can almost be assured everything will work correct with a Bioware name and Character name that do not exceed a combined 26 characters. I know this sounds really short, but if your character needs to have an initial instead of their full name, then all the more RP when you meet someone.
Just a helpful tip as I believe quite a few of the bug reports are due to this.
// Perhaps a mod can sticky this as well.
