in thread stuck on regexp

To make the username no longer than 30 characters use this:

/^[A-Za-z][-.\w]{1,29}$/

This will match when the first character is [A-Za-z] and is followed by 1 to 29 characters of form [-.\w] (thus making the total length of username from 2 to 30 characters)

And yes, \w caters for [a-zA-Z0-9_]

    if single character usernames are allowed, {1,29} should be replaced by {0,29}
