Hi @AlanerPolska,

For reason against spam, simple and common names are blocked. You can attempt disabling the following security option :

General > Security > Unauthorize subscriptions made with the most commonly used spam usernames : No

That may not work entirely, so you should recommend that they use names that are a bit more complex. Once they're registered they can change their name via the profile page if you have the following option enabled.

Users and Groups > User options > Allow users to change their username : Yes

Hello,

You could try this: Acp (Admin panel)-->General-->Security-->'Disallow subscriptions with the most commonly used spam names?'--> tick 'NO' and save. This should help minimize the chances of this happening.


Note: That if a username is too 'basic', such as like Eric, etc the anti-spam mechanisim may block it. In these cases, simply try adding a few numbers or symbols.
