It means your thread has been moved to a different forum on the Support Forum

Now regarding your issue. Perhaps they are already members? Or are they guests?

They're neither. My registration is closed. I can't even pull his name up to ban him/her. They go by the name guest. I have no idea how they we able to sign on, or why i can't even click on the name for any information. They are not on my members list either. They appear to be a guest, but i'm closed to any guest.

Checked your site and it appears to be closed to all guests o.o

Try going to your Admin Panel and checking all your forum sections and categories, just to make sure guests are not allowed.
