I just received this note from one of my forum visitors:

"I am trying to register for the discussion forum; but every time I put in a user name I am told it is in use by another member, even when I just use my first and last name, with various number combinations."

Is this something that has come up before, or do you feel the user is doing something wrong when she attempts to register?

I looked up the user names she is trying to put in, and they're not taken.

Please advise.

Do you have any partial or full names entered in the Reserved Names tabs under the Registration Settings that would match the names shes trying?

Thanks for your response. No, both my full name reserves and partial name reserves are completely blank. Any other ideas?

go into your CP, click "Rebuild & Reindex"
Then, check "Rebuild Member Metadata", then click "Rebuild Selected Areas"

Once it's finished, see if she still has the same problem
