Isn't there some kind of filter for Username during account creations??
I seem to be getting a few inappropriate usernames with words in them like bitch, ass, ****, etc...

If there isn't, there ought to be. (y)

It's in admincp but may not be functional.

Rectangle Font Parallel Screenshot Number


Edit - it may also require superadmin access on some sites.

I don't recall seeing that in our ACP. I think that is for SACP access only

I do send out notes but I rarely get a response.
Todays catch sent me a note back wanting me to change it to Papi Chulo to which I declined also. I'm waiting for them to send me an appropriate name lol

Your not the only one, the problem is there are so many ways of disguising a word or sentence, I've seen some very imaginative ones, if it resembles obscenity then I will delete their post giving them a reason and tell them to contact me for a name change and that further posts under that username will also be deleted, very, very rarely do I get a reply. Also some words have much different 'meanings' other countries.
Not an easy situation to control.

Is that in AdminCP or Super-AdminCP? Or where in AdminCP is it found. Nodes, Users, where? I've looked but I'm not seeing anything like you posted so I might be looking in the wrong place. I'm seeing some rather suggestive names of late myself. I'd be adding some words if I knew how to get to that example that was posted. Wondering if this Google one tap is the reason myself. It's just way too easy to get a username now so expect to see much more of these inappropriate or suggestive names.

I can't see it either, it must require higher access than we've got. 馃槙

Never seen this on XF????? Would be handy for some of us.

Obviously some of us are more equal than others :eek:.
