Good day:
Its my goal to make further technical posts, but for now there was a major issue with the registration fields screen name and user name.
My current 'A292A' is not by choice. Only five letters and the numbers 2 and 9 would be accepted(any order). Minimum of 3 characters met, seemed to work ok, but the following names/combos would give "Can't use $#[, ect ect"


You get the picture... 100s of simple names(only letters/numbers) were tried and given the character error, until A292A was found.

Tried to register on two different computers, separate IPs. 1 machine Fixfox 3.6, other IE(latest). Same issue. Also tried swapping keyboards and using copy/paste from browser fields to bypass any possible local input errors. If this an unknown issue and a freakish occurrence then my name is A292A. 8-)

Thanks in advance!

Interesting. Looks like it's a known issue in our version of IPB. I've removed the character restriction for now.
