Solved My forum isn't allowing some names?

Post by FIB on September 18th 2014, 1:22 pm

Having an odd problem with a new forum, I am trying to create a test member and no matter what name I register in I get the same message as show below which is that the name has already been taken but I don't have any members with these names, I only created the forum today.
