@ character prefix for username (@username)
I am setting up Vanilla 2.1.1 and jsConnect to connect to Vanilla to enable SSO from my membership site.
My membership site software enables the use of a unique "nickname" that I can then use to create a unique username in Vanilla. All tests out well so far.
But a bit like Twitter and to differentiate a nickname from a "real name", I would like to prefix all my nicknames, and therefore Vanilla usernames with the @ character.
First of all, I can't seem to find anything here on allowed characters for usernames.
So am I able to create and use usernames in Vanilla that are prefixed with the @ symbol?
If so, would this conflict with any other functions or plugin that I may use?
On the other side, would it have a possible benefit that the inclusion of an @username in a post, automatically creates a mention for that username?
@username to make those things work as well?
Would appreciate your thoughts and advice.
