Solved Users cannot sign up.. Says name already in use, when its not

Post by Reckinball on Tue Dec 20, 2011 9:21 am

Some of the users that are trying to sign up on my forum are getting the name already in use. Seems most of them are short names like Al, Kristy, etc. etc. After they sign up with another name then i can go in my admin panel and put there name to what they originally wanted. Do not see anywhere in the admin panel where there is a limit on the number of letters for a name or anything like that. Please help

Thanks

What if: Administration Panel => General => Forum => Security => Security Administration => Unauthorize subscriptions made with the most commonly used spam usernames. Wink
