    I'm just looking for what (Default) characters are allowed in a username when registering with XenForo. Will XenForo disallow certain characters by default?

    You can disallow certain characters in ACP -> Options -> User Registration

    That option only disallows words or phrases in user names. You need to use the "User Name Match Regular Expression" option below that to define which characters are allowed/disallowed in user names.

    I'm not looking to disallow certain words, phrases or characters in the username. All I am asking is what characters are allowed/disallowed by default in usernames.

    There aren't character limits by default.
