Dweller's Sri Lankan cricket team test was created to help combat subjectivity regarding WP:U.

One of the criteria for inappropriate usernames is "is extremely lengthy".

Given that "extremely lengthy" is undefined, subjectivity is brought in.

Under the terms of Dweller's Sri Lankan cricket team test, if the username is longer than the longest surname of any Sri Lankan cricketer, it is inappropriate.

As of 13 March 2012 that record is held by Pradeep Jayaprakashdaran, at 16 letters.

Critics of Dweller's Sri Lankan cricket team test may point out that this criterion is arbitrary, inexplicable and, erm, subjective. The critics are correct.
