Geek Girl added a discussion to , UNA Community

I am seeing user names allowed that are very misleading.  For example, "Administrator" and "Senior Developer", that misleads members of the community that they are talking to officials of Boonex and UNA instead of just other members.  I fell into that confusion myself when I saw user "Senior Developer" thinking that it was in fact, the senior developer of UNA.  Now I see a user "Administrator" that I doubt is an admin of the UNA community here due to the content of the recent post they made.

  • Hi Geek Girl - fair point, it could be confusing, we will discuss.

    • Easy way to solve this would if una software had a usernames blacklist it would help everyone making there networks also.

      • A blacklist might be helpful but it would actually need to use a regex to check for such things as admin in Admin-istrator.  Also, human interaction is helpful; just checking new joins for user name on a site will work.  Although I know that if you are a busy site and get a few hundred sign-ups a week, it is time wasted for a moderator to shift through the new member joins.

        • Indeed on Dolphin I had a mod made by eSASe (it does not rejuvenate us) that contained a list of prohibited words.

          • Baloo yes this is needed as geek girl said we cant have people running around with the usernames like administrator and so on on our networks makes it look unprofessional.

            • Good point!

              • For instance - a person name Administrator ask a user to send their site credentials in a private message so they can "help" resolve a problem.  Problem?

                • For instance - a person name Administrator ask a user to send their site credentials in a private message so they can "help" resolve a problem.  Problem?

                  Exactly

                  • indeed there is a app to stop messages like this but we need a better system to deal with our users the one we have has flaws and we need to fix it one feature at a time till its just right

                    • why not people using their real names?
