Nick-name challenge with special characters

Nick-name challenge with special characters
May 26, 2020 01:17PM

I'd like to create a challenge based on the geocachers' nick-name. As is often the case, only the characters of the alphabet and the numbers of the nick-name are taken. I would like to take the special characters of the nick-name too.
In other words, if the nickname is ABC&123.[D ] the geocacher must have found caches starting with each character of the nick-name and not only caches starting with letters and numbers.

Is this correct or too negative?

Thanks for answering. Loulousoleil

I'm sorry but since the introduction in 2016 of the challenge guidelines this type of challenge is no longer allowed.
