  • 2 users, SAME name! Huh?

    I had 2 users sign up with the exact same name, how is this possible? I thought vBulletin wouldn't let that happen?
    I Love vBulletin

    That is not allowed. They might have used some weird characters that look the same. Examine the names closely.

      Hey ab420,

      It appears you are NOT the only ones having this problem.

      I'm having it...

      as is another member...

      I too keep hearing about these buggers using ASCI codes in their nick in order to create duplicate accounts. But frankly, I ain't seeing it!

      If VB.com can't validate this answer, that it's ASCI codes... then at least I'd like to know how they or I can prevent this from happening again in the future!

          I don't understand. Members aren't permitted to share their experiences??

            That's not what I said. You have a problem you want fixed. Please stick to your thread for help with that problem. Posting on multiple threads with the same issue is not productive.

              My apologies. No one from VB answered my thread so when I was directed to a thread that sounded like my problem I (naturally) came here looking for the answer.

                Hi Lyte,

                I see you have Quick Register, is this what your using?

                http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=114342

                Perhaps it has something to do with the problem of multiple user names.

                  Hey Andy,

                  I pulled my Quick Reg hack from here...

                  I don't know if this one is the same as you point out on VB.org.

                  It would be interesting to find out if everyone who's having this issue is using a quick registration hack.
