Forum Usename Restriction

Post by TheAbyss »

Hi. Wouldnt it be nice if some characters in forum username registrations would be restricted? Like letters from other languages that have different characters... like áóäöã for example, or maybe some \/|. That would improve the forum :) I'm looking forward for your oppinions!

Regards,

having \/ | characters is ok, having "áóäöã" won't be really a nice idea, many won't even understand what that is nor how to write it.

yeah, don't misunderstand but usernames like "áóäöã" are kinda annoying, and not understandable at all by too many users..

anyway..regards.

Anyway I agree with some restrictions of the forum username that we are choosing.. why not think of something good instead of something weird? :classic:
