Currently, we can use a half-width space
and a half-width hyphen
- in our display name (username) as a delimiter.
However, there are more delimiter symbols commonly used in the international community. For example, these two delimiters are very popular in the Japanese community.
- a full-width space
- a full-width middle dot
For now, if we try to include these letters in our name, the site says the following error:
Display Name can only contain letters, digits, spaces, apostrophes or hyphens and must start with a letter or digit
I want to change this behavior. How about adding more delimiters for the international community? At least, I want to add the two delimiters above for the Japanese community.
(By the way, a user in SOja community noticed an interesting behavior: we cannot use single full-width space
山田 太郎 but we can use two successive full-width spaces
山田 太郎. So it may be a bug that we cannot use a full-width space.)
Context: Originally, a related bug report was posted to Stack Overflow for Japanese and got a lot of votes, so I post an edited report here in English.
