    Hi @HeidiKnz@heidi_007,

    You might want to check if this config.php values still work under 3.3:

    The regex you are looking for is:


    The length restriction for example can be edited like this:


    So you put in your /conf/config.php file:

    $Configuration['Garden']['User']['ValidationRegex'] = '[A-z_]';
    $Configuration['Garden']['User']['ValidationLength'] = '{4,15}';

    Probably change the translation here too:

    $Definition['UsernameError'] = "Username can only contain letters, numbers, and underscores, and must be between 4 and 15 characters long.";

    Not tested, I have too look it up anytime soon. :)

    Best, phreak
