    It's really, really, really frustrating for someone who is trying to register to find out--after hitting Sign Up--that their chosen user name is taken. It means having not only to re-enter a new user name but also to re-enter the password and, most aggravating of all, to re-enter any captcha. Unchecking "announcements," etc., again, too.

    Is there a way to check for existing user names on sign-up so that folks don't get pissed off before they even get on the board as a member?

    I'm not sure why you wouldn't see it, but if you enter a username that is in use, immediately after going to the next field you should see this...

    It seems to be working on your site as far as I can tell.

    Interesting. I just registered on a board on which I did not see that. Maybe the board was using an older version? Is this a relatively new feature?

    Yeah, it wasn't my site. I was registering elsewhere and had the issue.

    It's been there since 1.0. It should be checked as soon as you "blur" the name field.
