    I have never seen this before but I had a user sign up with a smiley face in their username. Is there a way to not have the option not to do so?

    Just for reference - what is the actual username they registered with (copy and paste from ACP)?

    Was it like this?

    Yes- just one smile at the end of her username. But it was an actual Xenforo smile.

    Her name and a smile literally. In the ACP as well.

    Ah, okay, so as @Chris Deeming suggested above - using ALT+no. - for example:

    ALT+1 = ☺
    ALT+2 = ☻
    ALT+3 = ♥
    ALT+4 = ♦


    I assume this is something @Mike would need to look at for a future fix (non-standard characters allowed in username)?

    Untested but using regex for username validation should be able to deal with that.
