When was not allowing spaces in user names started?

Recommended Posts

So I  had reason to create a new user account and I wasn't able to add a space into the user name. Anybody have any idea when this restriction started? Spaces seem fine for all the user names that have them, such as my current one.

There have been occasional issues with spaces and special characters in usernames in various Apps and updates for years.  But I first noticed that new usernames could not have a space, around the end of 2017.

We noticed it in '12, and again when so many couldn't log into their own accounts during that mary hyde promotion in '17 (for some odd reason).  :)
