Help to solve forum registration issues

Postby rakekniven » Sun Jul 19, 2015 4:29 pm

Hello,

some users experiencing problems while register to our forums.

We use StopForumSpam module to prevent spam.
Unfortunately this module shows message "One or more of the fields entered was marked as spam." also if username is already in use.

Another cause could be your username. Sometimes it has been used by spammers in the same ip range and therefore it is marked as spam.
Please change your username e.g. "john" to "john2try" and drop us a message at forum@owncloud.org.
We will change it back to wanted name if possible.

Sorry about that, but we have no resources to change it at the moment.

We have been it hard by many spam waves. Some days we got hundreds of spam messages. Cleaning that manually is a pain.
ownCloud is not only about files. There is so much more. Explore the apps to extend your ownCloud.

Hi,

Can't you provide a little more info, saying "that name may have already been used", so a person can correctly change name a little?

thanks!
Michael

Hello,

you are absolutely right: The error messages should be much more specific.

Unfortunately we have no knowledge in forum development. We just using forum engine and plugins as it is.
The plugin has no config options related to messages.
Maybe someone of our community has some insights here?

Cheers.

Hi Rakekniven,

i also had the seem problems. My problem was my choosen username. Maybe you can delete "2try".

Perhaps you have the same configuration of signs as you have within the password?
