Value match requirements do not permit two words to be separated by a space

    I have a custom profile field set as a multi-line text box and the value match requirements as A-Z, 0-9, and _ only.

    You can enter a single word, or a single word followed by a space, but you can't enter two words separated by a space.
    So this prohibits entering a name for example.

    Of course I could enter it using _, but a space is the normal convention for separating words.

    The only other option is to set the field value to none, but that then allows for too much leeway.

    Any chance <space> and , (comma) can be added to this field value as I suspect that's how most people will want to use it.

    Edit: I suppose I can always use the custom regex field...

    I'm not sure I understand your point?

    I'm asking for that field to be expanded to allow space and comma.

    Edit: Not fair deleting your post like that ragtek, looks like I'm arguing with myself ;)

    i've misunderstood your suggestion ( i thought it's a question why backspace isn't allowed.

    When I seen the first two post the second one flipped me out. I was thinking how the heck can he not know what he is talking about, he just explained it his self. Surely does look funny when you respond to your self like that. hahaha
