User Registration options

Hello, we're looking to upgrade from a VB 4.2.5 site and have a couple of questions regarding user registrations.

User Registration form:
  • Our forum has some requirements that the username is a first and last name. Can a regex validation be applied to the registration form username field to ensure the user knows what to enter?

For connected accounts:
  • Is there a good practice for moderation of new accounts through connected services? Such as all FB users go to a FB users group, they get moderated for username requirements, then are given membership privileges?
  • Is there a way to use the users first and last name from the connected account information (aka from Facebook) that is created/updated on the Xenforo user account?

You can set a regex for usernames.

Not really, but users creating accounts through connected services will be prompted to enter a username which would need to match the regex requirements anyways.

Is there a way to use the users first and last name from the connected account information (aka from Facebook) that is created/updated on the Xenforo user account?
I don't think so.
