I recently tried to register "Landon Manning" and I got the following response:
Someone else has already registered that UserName. Please try again. Use your back button.
On a whim (and to test the bounds of the software that you all are using ), I tried to post using the name "Landon Manning" and I got the following response:
Sorry, but we have no one registered with the UserName you typed. Please try again. Use your Back button.
Quite possibly it is the password that is incorrect (as I supplied my password), but I was wondering if this was a bug, a mistake, or that someone actually has my name registered.
Thanks

(apperently not Landon Manning!)

I just checked and I can't find a memeber under the name Landon Manning. Now maybe I'm just missing it, but try registering again. If it still doesn't work, let us know.

Nope, same thing.
Perhaps the email field is set up to be unique??

I could be mistaken, but it looks like you are set up with the name "landon manning" and the system won't allow a "Landon Manning" if there is the same name but just different case.

Suggestion: (once upgrade has taken place)
Make the case-sensitive issue consistent.
ie.
Case 1:
Allow registration of different cases of names as distinct.
ie. Landon Manning and landon manning are distinct names.
Case 2:
Have differenct cased names be equivalent, but allow posting of different cases.
ie. Allow Landon Manning and lAndOn MannING and ... etc... to post under the account landon manning (or whatever!). Note: Landon Manning and lAndOn MannING would show up in the post as the author)
Thanks!
Landon Manning
