How were you adding new users?

Neither do we because you haven't given us any useful information to work with yet.

I have always been able to add new uses manually by registe4ring as a new user. (added my four sons names no problem)

added some other names as well to use as practice for setting up permissions and testing.

Recently I deleted most of the practice names by deleting them from their profile pages

deleted my four sons names as well. Using the same method FIND MEMBER > select > delete their profile page.

Now I have asked them to sign up through their phones by visiting the forum to register.

they can't register.. nothing happens.. They have tried to use different names then the practice names I had them listed under their real names

but they can't register by using an Internet handle

I am not sure what you mean by "Nothing Happens".
Your registration page works just fine, other than you have the captcha on there twice.

Support for 3.0.x ended over a year ago.

I get a very non standard message saying "You only had one chance to register and you blew it. Good bye" even though I filled out the fields correctly.

That's a shocker of a style by the way, the text is barely readable against the background pattern.

oh oh. You do realise that support for 3.0.x is dead and buried? (2014 IIRC)

I just tried to login. I managed to log in but it was very very slow and the account does not show me the issue. Perhaps you should post a printscreen of the forum registration settings.

Sorry KevC, I was the one to log in. I'm logged out now.

When a person tries to register - and hits the submit button - they do not show up on the inactive user or to be arpproved as a newly registered user.

Someone just was able to register under the name of xxx I did approve them

Screen Capture of Registration Settings ?? Ok

Yes. So your registration is working fine.
I am guessing your other users were getting the error message that KevC got.
