What is the rule for characters permitted in usernames? (1 post)

    Please, what is the rule regarding characters in usernames?

    Strict Latin alpha? Alphanumeric? Accented characters? Etc.

    Which punctuation is allowed? Underscore(_)? Period(.)? hyphen(-)? Etc.

    I am trying to understand the rule, for programming, and for user documentation. (Experimenting by creating many usernames to discover the exceptions, would not be a reliable way to discover the rule, in my opinion.)

    Thanks!
