    Hi,

    I tried to add a new user that has a dot in its name (for example: stefan.papp). This led to an error message: "Only lowercase letters (a-z) and numbers are allowed."

    It would be a nice features to allow at least dots for usernames

    Thank you!

  2. You can change the nickname but not the login name. IIRC this is for security and MultiSite compatibility (you shouldn't use . or - in a subdomain name, and those are defaulted to the user's ID).
