On my CV Steven Hicks, the University name is being truncated. I've selected my University from the drop down but when saving it saves the value as "University Of Nort Carol" rather than the full name (Carolina at Charlotte).

This is based on some client-side javascript issues with the autocomplete -- don't autocomplete if you're running into this, hit ESC and enter it manually.

However, we also have a fix in place so when you click [Save], it should correct this!

I did click save after using autocomplete. – monksy Nov 13 '09 at 23:02
I believe the fix was deployed around 8 am PST -- try again and see. – Jeff Atwood Nov 13 '09 at 23:19
Ah yes - I remember now. I eventually "fixed" my problem by typing it in full and not using the auto-complete. – adrianbanks Nov 14 '09 at 1:08

I had this with my university, but editing it again sorted the problem out. It now displays in full.

I've tried editing several times, but it keeps doing that. – monksy Nov 13 '09 at 16:33

Funny thing - my first school, "Hudson Valley Community College", renders properly.

I wonder if it has to do with non-capitalized words in the name?

(pure speculation)
