Hi,

No it is not possible to increase/decrease the limit, even for guests. It might possible via JavaScript. However, if someone else will like to provide a code for this, then that will be their choice. But, as for now it isn't possible.

Sadly stand alone characters can't be eliminated. However you can eliminate words.

ACP --> General --> Username Censoring.

Hello,

Your best bet would be to use the username censoring feature as stated in the above post. This will prevent anyone registering with a certain character in their username.

Just to add to what's already said, the username censoring does require you to enter a minimum of 3 characters. So you couldn't enter a stand alone character.

If you would like to censor one particular character, simply use wildcards ( * symbol )

For example, if the letter "a" was the character you wanted to censor, you could enter:

Code:
*a*
...into the field.

Well the only thing you can do is what Base suggested and go through filtering each individual symbol.
