      Description

      Many of my students registered with names containing spaces or underscores. When I had to reset their lost passwords I could not update their profile on the Edit profile page because Moodle said 'Can only contain alphabetical letters or numbers' about their username. If Moodle allows a username to be created it should also be a valid one to edit.
