New user registration issues?

Post by E-Mad™ on January 23rd 2013, 12:07 am

Hello.

I have just opened my forum today and only have 3 registered users at the moment. However I have got word that upon registering at my forum my members were told the usernames they had chosen were already taken even though they were not, thus my members had to alter their chosen names slightly or change them altogether? Can anyone help?

As Admin you should be able to change their usernames to whatever they want them to be, in the admin panel.

I know that and I can. I want to not have to change their names as I shouldn't have to.

Its possibly because of this.

By setting it to No, you have opened up a space for spammers to register using the common usernames.
