    Reserved names?

    I just realized that YaBB has the ability to have reserved names. Is/Was "Sensei" a reserved name? Someone cropped up claiming to be him, but I'm suspicious.

    Dont think so..

    The one imitating Sensei, was in the database named: Sensei%2E

    Yet I can't seem to find that person anymore.. Did cloverm 'kill -KILL' him ?

    The imposter not too long ago had a period at the end of his name. Am I the only one that noticed?

    Re: Reserved names?

    YaBB has reserve name function and I think Sensei name is one of the reserve name ( IIRC ). But the complication is that depending on the way it's registered such as capitalization and inclusion of periods ( as mentioned before here ) and underscore or dash, someone can achieve the similar visualization of the name but if you look carefully, it's not the name itself. Just a misguide one.
