It could be made to add numbers at the end to prevent duplicates...and you could set a max. length limit...
e.g. UrlSlug([Column1),PreventDuplicatesBoolean,MaxCharacterLength) UrlSlug([Column1],true,120)
Get voting folks! Gotta be a useful function this one.

Of course Regex may not be the solution you need. I know that I could likely write a formula to do what you wish, but it would be a very complicated one. Regex was designed to make this "simpler, so if you can use it.. great.
Regex is just a way to make complex patterns. There is no way for me to teach regex here and it is not needed. What you do is go to the regex library and find a pattern that work for you already. Maybe tweak it a small amount.
This works in text columns, towards the bottom of a text collum setup there is a Validation check box. Checking that you can add a Validation pattern. It accepts Regex expressions. If you are using multiple columns and combining them into your URL Slug, You can use regex to make sure people enter the correct format in each.
