 > Thanks for your help with this so far, wenlujon.
 > It's worth noting that, if you're using WordPress Multisite (as you
 appear to be, given your changes in ms-functions.php), the restrictions on
 login characters come from WordPress and not from BuddyPress. See
 https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/17904. BP uses WP's user system,
 and it's unlikely that we would make username requirements less strict
 that WP does in the case of multisite.
 > That being said, it's likely that in the case of non-MS, we are being
 overzealous about sanitization of user_login and especially user_nicename
 in various places. Our testing should be focused on non-MS.

 yes, i'm using MS. and i feel comfortable to tweak the sanitize_username
 so that Chinese username can be supported (majority of users here like to
 login in through Chinese name).

 I can login in with the chinese username and even post in the forum.

 however, i encounter 2 problems afterwards:
 1. can't access the user profile through buddypress anymore (the link is
 redirected as illustrated in the description.
 2. can't mention the user through AT[chinese login name] since no link is

 are you saying it won't be a problem if i use single site? anyway, i also
 need MP (one for the blog and another for the forum, i need to manage them
 separately but share users).
