    In our vB4, we created a mod on registration page. That mod uses an extra field called `HomeTown`; we then "sticked" both "Username", ", " and "HomeTown" together to create the username:
    foobar, London
    Notice the comma? Now Ive upgraded the forum to vB5 on a test server. Ive noticed when I try to send a PM to someone with a comma in their username, I get the error message. Sending a PM to someone without the comma, all is well. That user was registered before we implemented the hack (kevin).

    Let's look at the username only "foobar, London". When a comma is in the username, would that trigger the error message? I suspect that's the issue. The aim is not to have anymore hacks in the core. Thanks

    Commas are "stop character" and shouldn't be used in the usernames.
