Hi
Sry I dont know how to call it. But the Search funktion here dont show me any Article who someone discuss it before. :D
Is there an List with all Therms a Newbee Admin should add in the "Disallow usernames" List like: Admin, Official, VIP,...?
I some Forum I could create some Username who sound very official what can be fatal when other user think a Admin is talking to them.
THX!

only you can decide what usernames you would want to ban. personally I think you are still over thinking this whole thing. If I remember correctly your board is not even live yet and you are worrying about things that probably will NOT be a problem for a long time , if ever.

get your board uploaded to your hosting account and make it live. get some members, some posts etc. it is not doing you or anybody else any good sitting on your computer at home.

luck,
robert

I've never put anything in it. People usually have a particular username they use everywhere. I've never even had anyone attempt to register with names like admin and mod. I think if anyone ever does use it, it's for 'offensive' words.
