1.0 alpha 2/WordPress 2.6.2 : usernames with spaces

  • Just for information and perhaps integrity debates, I would like to tell you all that I currently only allow registration from WordPress.

    I noticed a few messages about usernames with spaces and have found that WordPress allows registration with usernames with spaces, and bbPress does allow login with the same.

    However, I have found that the general normal condition on the Net is that usernames do not have spaces.

    This could be seen as a great advantage of WordPress and bbPress or it could disturb the status quo.

    Everyone’s feedback would be appreciated.

    I say “why restrict the characters in the login?” I would vote to leave them in. Most people won’t use them, especially if they’ve been around for a while and are used to no spaces in usernames. But why arbitrarily limit the characters in the username?

    Thanks Chris.

    I’m really not too fussed whtehe or not there are spaces as they work.

    The spaces probably activated my raticular activating system and impulsed me to write this topic
