    re: Group name contains invalid characters


     

    What are the rules for what characters are allowable in group names?

     

    I'm just curious.

      I don't actually know the answer.  Just trail and error.

        Just trail and error.

        "Trail and Error" should be the name of an ultra training group.

          I haven't touched that code for so long that I don't remember all the rules.  I think it's

          - must start with a letter

          - cannot have two non-alphanumeric characters in a row

          - cannot be longer than a certain length

           

          What's the name you're trying to create?

            "Trail and Error" should be the name of an ultra training group.

             

            Or a group for those injured while running trails... Big grin

              I'm guessing it may have a highly restricted definition of letter -- I've noticed several non-English letters getting refused.

                I know some groups that have characters in them.

                  I was wondering when we'd get to this....

                      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                        That's an example of an illegal group name character. 

                        Also ` (backquote). Also 甲.Also 跑.

                         

                        I should probably reiterate that I was merely curious, like the kid who saw the boarded up gate, and wanted to know what was on the other side.

                          BTW, colons are illegal also (e.g., "18:36").

                            I was kind of wondering if only a subset of basic ASCII was allowed -- which happen to be the letters that cover English and Hawaiian and Latin, I believe.
