Username Already Registered

Post by Carloss on August 3rd 2012, 2:52 pm

Hi,

I'm having problems with my new board; some members can register no problem but others are being told that the username is already taken.

This is not possible as the board is brand new and I only have 5 members.

Maybe their username is too long or too short but I can't find a way to alter this in the admin panel.

Please help!

Regards and thanks

Carloss

Definitely not possible.

I have 3 new members with the same problem, all using unique usernames.

Hello,

Sometimes, the usernames most used by spammers are blocked.

What was the username ?

Hello,

It isn't related to the number of users but to the username chosen.
