    You do not have to do that..

    I own a popular V Bulletin powered website (link disclosed) and we have no issue after performing the following steps to prevent spam and illegal names.



    if you go to ur admincp and open up options then go to user registration options see attached images.

    select "user registration options" then scroll down to where you see illegal usernames>

    also user titles you can block names in titles



    type in the names you do not want users registering with.
    click on save.

    then sign up for recaptcha -http://recaptcha.net/
    go to human verfication options and input your keys>




    if you need help just ask i been using VB since it was version 1.0

    you do not have to do all of that,

    I have been using VB since it was V1.0, I have attached some images to explain how to fix this issue..
    First go to www.recaptcha.net sign up for there free service then go to your VB admincp and check out "human verification options" and input your key provided from recaptcha.net >



    Next go into Vb Options > "User registration options">



    and scroll down find the illegal usernames and input the words "admin" "administrator" etc etc.. this will stop new registrations from using any words with the words you put the list.



    you can also block user title names.




    If you need any thing just PM me

    recaptcha has been enabled on this forum for a while now. the other things I had already done.

    whoever is doing this is most likely an actual person therefore making moderating new registrations the only way to stop it.

    Gotcha!
    if you enabled the words admin from being used in the username how in the heck are they registering with them names? lol
    I did not know you already did all that, it should have stopped them from signing up the way they did.

    I know its a pain in the ass to moderate each new member but it really is the only way that we are going to stop ppl like that from spamming. crazy
