    Disallowed Words in User Names:

    (The words or phrases in this field will not be allowed in user names. Put each word or phrase on its own line.)

    Should this be "Disallowed User Names" ?

    (The words or phrases in this field will not be allowed as user names. Put each word or phrase on its own line.)

    At the moment I'm not sure whether entering something here will count as an exclusion if it is part of a username or whether it represents the whole of the username?

    For example - if I enter "Admin" into the box below, can someone register a username "Adminator" or "Adminsource" or "Sadminus"?

    Or does an entry here represent the whole username so "Admin" would exclude only "Admin" and "Admin Bloke" would be allowed?

    Cheers,
    Shaun :D

    I think it makes more sense to leave it as "Disallowed Words in User Names"

    Edit: Nevermind. Guess I should of tested it before I said something.

    If you add Admin, it will disallow Adminsource and anything else with admin in it.

    So it is a wildcard entry then?

    Maybe the description needs updating to clarify that then: "The words or phrases in this field will not be allowed in any part of user names. Put each word or phrase on its own line."
